Cognition & Learning

 

Cognition and Learning – extra support may be needed when children are learning at a slower rate than their peers even with the usual differentiation within the class.  This may include: Moderate (MLD), severe (SLD), Profound and multiple (PMLD) and specific (SpLD) (which affects 1 or more aspects of learning such as dyslexia, dyscalculia and dyspraxia).

There are a number of Associations and Charities that support young people with Dyslexia and learning difficulties.  See below for links to some of these.
