The 2020 Review of the Disability Standards for Education 2005
The Disability Standards for Education 2005 (the Standards) clarify and elaborate the legal obligations of education authorities and providers across the whole of education, including preschool/kindergartens, school, vocational education and training, and higher education. The Standards seek to ensure that students with disability can access and participate in education on the same basis as other students.
