Special Educational Needs and Disability Diploma

Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) refers to a range of learning difficulties, disabilities, or conditions that can affect a child’s ability to learn and participate in education, compared to their peers of the same age.

SEND encompasses a wide range of conditions, including but not limited to:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD) such as dyslexia or dyscalculia
  • Speech, language and communication difficulties
  • Sensory Impairments such as hearing or visual impairments
  • Physical disabilities such as cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy
  • Mental health conditions such as anxiety or depression

Children with SEND often require additional support, specialized resources, and different teaching approaches to help them access the curriculum and reach their full potential. This support can be provided through an Individual Education Plan (IEP) or a Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP).

Schools and educational settings have a legal obligation to make reasonable adjustments to support children with SEND and to ensure that they are not discriminated against on the basis of their disability or learning difficulty. There are also a range of organizations and charities that offer advice and support to families of children with SEND
