This website brings you summary background information on a number of difficulties and disabilities and further advice and guidance on how to support these, whether you are a learning support worker, teacher or student.
All information is appropriate to the post-compulsory educational setting but, as with a lot of educational practices, you should find any advice and guidance is transferable to your own setting. Each section will provide you with links for you to research further.
Any comments or suggestions are gratefully received; please email or follow me; links in the sidebar to the right.
