    Our child is attending a private school and due to what we believe to be a breach of the disability standards for education and the school failing in their duty of care to provide a safe learning environment we are moving school.

    We feel very strongly about what has occurred and are interested in speaking with a lawyer regarding our concerns and options available to pursue the matter.

    Can you please advise what lawyer would specialise in this area. I have conducted a search however been unsuccessful in finding a lawyer who specialises in this area.

    You're probably better off looking for a lawyer who specialises in anti-discrimination law.

    Need to think through the implications of what you are doing. There's a bigger picture to consider.

    Will your actions make it harder for disabled kids to get into schools because schools will consider it too hard and not worth their risk attempting to provide care as well as education. Will your actions against the first school be made known to other schools in your area who then just say sorry, we're not equipped to handle your child with those disabilities. Or sorry, our quota of disabled kids is full and we do not have the capacity to take on any more disabled kids.

    Would mediation be a better avenue rather than legal action?
