What is a statement of special educational needs?
0 out Of 5 Stars
A statement of special educational needs is a written document which should detail a child’s individual special educational needs and the specific provision which the Education Authority will arrange to meet those needs.
The contents of a statement are legally binding. The wording of the statement should be clear and thorough. Parent’s/carers have a right to be involved in the drafting of the statement and to seek amendments before it is made final.
