Definition of Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)


“Children have special educational needs if they have a learning difficulty which calls for special educational provision to be made for them. Children have a learning difficulty or disability if they: –

Have a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of children of the same age; or

Have a disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided for children of the same age in school.”
