Everyone has the right to learn.

In fact, an inclusive culture is key to the success of any educational or training provider.

The law requires education providers to support students with disability and make reasonable adjustments where necessary. This includes all public and private educational institutions, primary and secondary schools, and tertiary institutions such as TAFE, private colleges and universities.

 

Disability Standards for Education

All education providers must adhere to the Disability Discrimination Act (1992). This sets out the Disability Standards for Education that ensure students with disability can participate in education on the same basis as other students.

Disability Standards for Education also specify the provision of reasonable adjustments for students with disability – such as changes to a physical environment, modified communication systems or educational materials being made available in alternative formats.
