SEN What's it all about?
Special Educational Needs (SEN) is a term used when children find a particular aspect of learning and/or socializing at school and/or home challenging. Often these children are labelled "dumb", "slow" and fall behind in their studies or social interactions. Many advances have been made with professionals such as Speech & Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Educational Phsycologists and Teachers to advise Schools, Teachers and most importantly parents, how to help these children to learn better and be able to achieve great things in their school life and beyond. The is a wide spectrum of SEN which varies for each individual case. Some children show no symptoms at all, whereas others show mild symptoms and also severe multiple symptoms. I hope that the information here will help those of you who need it or have concerns about your childs well being and education.
