A guide to help parents navigate equality law, rights and entitlements when their autistic child is excluded or at risk of exclusion from school

This resource outlines the legal duties the Equality Act 2010 places on your child’s school in relation to the exclusion of disabled pupils. The examples given relate specifically to autistic pupils and are intended to help you and your child’s school avoid disability discrimination claims, where possible. Disruptive behaviour can be a manifestation of a pupil’s autism and excluding your child for exhibiting disability related behaviour can, in some cases, amount to disability discrimination.
