Cognition and Learning, including specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, ADHD

Support for learning difficulties may be required when children and young people learn at a slower pace than their peers, even with appropriate differentiation. Learning difficulties cover a wide range of needs, where children are likely to need support in all areas of the curriculum and associated difficulties. This encompasses a range of conditions such as dyslexia, dyscalculia and dyspraxia.
