What are Special Educational Needs and Disabilities?
Children have additional educational needs if they have a learning difficulty that calls for additional educational provision to be made for them. Children have a learning difficulty if they:
- - have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of children of the same age.
- - have a disability that prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided for children of the same age in schools within the area of the local authority.
- - are under compulsory school age and fall within the definitions above or would so do if special educational provision was not made for them.’ (Code of Practice September 2014)
