There are numerous and varied reasons why a child or young person might have special educational needs. These range from behavioural problems, learning difficulties, through medical, physical and neurological conditions to the loss of hearing, sight or speech.
The following sections highlight some of the main causes of learning disability and identifies many of the registered charities working in these areas.
In the Specific SEN Disabilities and Disorders section we've listed a range of groups that cover the main areas of special educational needs, and within them there are numerous links that you might find useful about various statutory bodies or other professional organisations and associations who work within or who may be involved with the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities sector in some way... as well as other possible useful links.
Hopefully this will help you to find the information you're looking for, quickly and efficiently.
