What are Cognition and Learning Needs?

Many people have cognition and learning needs which can affect their ability to access an age appropriate curriculum and also affect their ability to function on a day to day basis without carefully planned additional support and provision. These difficulties will present themselves differently according to each individual. Cognition and learning specialists offer advice and assessments for pupils with a broad spectrum of needs such as Speech, Language and Communication Needs, Specific Learning Difficulties including dyslexia and dyscalculia, Moderate Learning Difficulties, EAL with SEN or Complex Needs to enable them to develop and become more independent learners
