Disability Standards for Education

A practical guide for individuals, families and communities

Learn about:

  • Our rights: Who do the rights apply to, and what are they?
  • Reasonable adjustments: Australian law requires schools to make reasonable adjustment for students with disability.
  • What's fair?: Adjustments are designed to enable a student to learn on the same basis as others. However, ‘the same’ is not always ‘fair’. 
  • Working together: School staff should consult the student, or their family or other associate, before deciding on a reasonable adjustment.
