All people with disabilities, no matter how old they are, are protected from discrimination by a law called the Equality Act. This includes making sure that ‘reasonable adjustments’ are made so that people with disabilities can fully take part in things such as education and employment. For children with disabilities, schools must make reasonable adjustments to make sure that they are not discriminated against. This could include providing extra support and aids (like specialist teachers or equipment).
