Afasic - help for your child

The NASUWT, one of the teaching unions, has recently published this critical report on SEN, the term used in England and N Ireland, ALN in Wales and ASN in Scotland. The summary of the key issues includes the following points:

  • Almost two thirds of respondents said that support for learners had decreased in the last five years
  • Raised thresholds mean that many more learners do not qualify for specialist support
  • Some schools are unwilling to accept pupils that will adversely affect their performance
  • Teachers are not always equipped with the knowledge, skills and expertise to meet children’s needs

They are calling on Governments across the UK to take responsibility for ensuring that all learners receive a high quality education that meets their needs
