Classroom Help For Children With SEN


Under the Disability Discrimination Act, appropriate help must be provided by schools and colleges so that children with special educational needs are ‘on a level playing field’ with their peers.

Someone with dyspraxia who writes very slowly may qualify for extra time in exams, get help with typing tuition and be permitted to use a laptop in class.

You should hope for a quiet confidence from your school about fulfilling your child’s special needs, but if staff appear horrified by them or flippant in their attitude to dealing with it then it's time to reconsider what is best for your child.
