Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
The 4 broad categories of SEND are:
- Communication and interaction
- Cognition and learning
- Social, emotional and mental health
- Physical and sensory
A person has SEN if they have a learning difficulty or disability which calls for special educational provision to be made for him or her. At compulsory school age this means he or she has a significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of others the same age, or, has a disability which prevents or hinders him or her from making use of facilities of a kind generally provided for others of the same age in mainstream schools.
