Level D builds on what has been learned at levels B and C. Level B introduces the network of people who support children with SLD/PMLD/CLDD.

Level C takes a closer look at this web of professionals how best to foster team collaboration.

Level D focuses on how management and leadership in special schools can develop understanding between the many agencies involved supporting children.

It examines the sharing and communication of information: how observations, assessments, evaluations and analyses require contributions from different sources, and how this information can be synthesised.

Learning outcomes

  • Identify the local and strategic actions, barriers and solutions required to develop, promote and support multiprofessional working with other agencies and disciplines across all education areas.

Special Educational Needs

As defined by the Department for Education Special Educational Needs Code of Practice (2001), Children have special educational needs if they have a learning difficulty which calls for special educational provision to be made for them.

Children have learning difficulty if they have:

  • A significantly greater difficulty in learning than the majority of children of the same age, or
  • A disability which prevents or hinders them from making use of educational facilities of a kind generally provided for children of the same age in schools within the area of the local education authority.
