We assess pupils to find what stage they are at with language, motor, personal and social skills. We speak with the pupil, their parents and their teachers. We look over the pupil’s work and may come to see them in class or another learning environment.

The support offered will be based on research and evidence and may include

  • intervention around learning and behaviour
  • suggestions for creating a support plan.
