Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

The Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Code of Practice: for 0 – 25 years (2014) states that:

 

A child or young person has Special Educational Needs (SEN) if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for them. A child of compulsory school age or a young person has a learning difficulty or disability if they:

 

a) have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others of the same age; or

 

b) have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities of a kind  generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools or mainstream post-16 institutions.
