The family of a boy with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is suing for disability discrimination after his former Queensland primary school allegedly held him in a "withdrawal room" to calm him, and physically restrained him multiple times.

He has been embroiled in a two-year legal battle with Education Queensland over his alleged treatment at a school in Hervey Bay between 2011 and 2015.

Another hearing on the case is set down for tomorrow.

In documents filed in the Federal Court, it is alleged the boy was subjected to physical violence, restraint and seclusion because of his disabilities.

The department is denying it was unlawful discrimination.

In its defence filed in late 2017, the department argued there was an "ongoing risk" to staff and students' health and safety due to behaviour described as "highly disruptive" and "aggressive".

Education Queensland also denied that his conditions constituted the meaning of disability under the legislation, or that his behaviours were a symptom of them.
