Additional Learning Needs

A new law

In Wales, the way young people with additional learning needs learn is changing.

There is a new law called the Additional Learning Needs and Educational Tribunal (Wales) 2018 Act which says that:

  • professionals need to help young people as early as possible in order to reach their full potential, and assess their individual needs to tailor the help they give them
  • children and families need to be involved in developing their individual plans

The law will start to change the process for children from September 2021.

The law says professionals must consider children’s rights  when they make decisions about Additional Learning Needs.
