Much is written about systems for identifying and meeting the educational needs of children with the most severe disabilities and learning difficulties, particularly at the moment with the new system in England.

However, many more children have additional/special educational needs without being at the greatest/most complex level calling for a Statement, Education Health and Care Plan (new, in England) or Co-ordinated Support plan (in Scotland).

This is the first in a series of articles about the support for this larger group of children. Each article will deal with a common worry parents have about their child's education when they have special or additional needs.
