The Education (Additional Support for Learning) (Scotland) Act 2004 informs practitioners and organisations of their duties, and parents of their rights, in respect of the provision of support for children and young people.
You will have the opportunity to be involved fully in discussions and decisions about your child's learning. You want what is best for your child and have unique knowledge and experience to contribute to understanding their additional support needs. You have a key role to play in your child's education. Partnership with parents is central to ensuring that children and young people with additional support needs benefit fully from learning.
Your child's school will be able to provide you with a great deal of information about your child's additional support need.
You can get help and support from
Enquire, the Scottish advice and information service for additional support for learning. Use Enquire's telephone helpline (0345 123 2303) to get advice on your specific circumstances.
Or find information on Parentzone Scotland on your child's
specific support needs.
Our newsletters provide the latest information on education news and events, as well as details of resources and activities to help you support your child's learning
