Additional Support for Learning

Additional Support Needs

An additional support need comes from anything which is a barrier to learning.  Most, or all, schools will have some children with additional support needs of some kind.  The education authority has many legal duties towards pupils with additional support needs.

Information about this is contained in a booklet called In On The Act : Information For The General Public which is published on the education authority website at  or contact the additional support for learning team on telephone number 0131 469 3444.

The City of Edinburgh leaflet giving information about dyslexia for parents is now available to view and download by following the link below. This includes support strategies used at home and in school, and links to national advice centres. Please contact your child’s teacher or our ASL  team if you have any queries.
