Early _years _ddaFrom September 2002, the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 applies to all providers of early years services. This leaflet explains how the DDA applies to those providing care and education in early years settings. It provides examples of how the duties work and suggests some simple approaches that may help to ensure that disabled children are not discriminated against.
