“All agencies will work together to produce one plan for a child…it will take a headache away from parents…the transition can run really smoothly from 0 – 25… continuity is going to be much better, also their development towards independence”.
The Additional Learning Needs and Education Tribunal (Wales) Bill will benefit learners and their families when it introduces changes to the way their additional learning needs are managed.
Learners will have an individual development plan (IDP) which should be continuously updated, informed by all agencies that need to be involved and takes them through from 0 to 25. Making moves between early years settings, schools or further education institutions seamless and preparing them better for life after full time education.
Find out in brief how practitioners are adopting the new ways of working proposed by the Bill in the short video below, or go to Additional learning needs transformation programme for full information and a longer film which explains the changes more fully.
