Abstract

This article examines some of the implications of the extension of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 to education as brought about by the Special Educational Needs and Disability Act 2001. It focuses on inconsistencies in the new scheme and draws attention to the relative under-recognition of the rights of disabled children.

Keywords: child law, family law, disability, discrimination reforms, education
