The term ‘special educational needs‘ has a legal definition:
Children with special educational needs all have learning difficulties or disabilities that make it harder for them to learn than most children of the same age. These children may need extra or different help from that given to other children of the same age.
Special Educational needs are children you may all into the following diagnosis but not limited to these: ASD, AD(H)D, Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, ADD, PDA, ODD, OCD and medical issues.
Having a child with a Specific Learning Difficulty (SpLD) comes with lots of challenges. It also comes with comorbidities such as low self esteem, shame, anxiety, depression, tiredness and under achievement. If a child or young person is supported with their SpLD then they can easily meet their potential inside and outside he classroom and outside.
Using the latest techniques in Neurobiology, Neuroscience, the Polyvagal theory and Bodywork, I had successfully helped many children who have DSM5 diagnosis or not.
I have a child with SpLDs and once he was fully and holistically supported he was able to excel and achieve great things in school and beyond. I searched for years of how to help him and was unable to find the right thing. So, I learned it all myself. I know what it is like for a child who is struggling and also for the parent trying to help and the teacher who is also doing what they can.
I also have great success which Challenging Behaviour which may also be in response to a SpLD. I also blog on this so there may be something to help on my Blogs Page.
