Disability Standard for Education in Australia

In August 2005 the Australian Government proclaimed a new Disability
Standard for Education. The Standard clarifies the responsibilities of
education providers and students under the Australian Disability
Discrimination Act. The standard is completely comprehensive - including all
types of education and training and including any provider (public or
private).

The impact of these Standards is likely to be significant with students
increasingly demanding that education providers meet their legal
obligations.

Details of the Standards:
