Cognition and Learning

All children develop at different rates, however sometimes children have difficulties with learning (where, despite appropriate approaches and interventions and developing understanding of the learner’s needs, the rate of progress is reducing or static and the gap between same age peers with a similar starting point is increasing).

This might be just in one subject such as English or Maths and could indicate difficulties such as dyslexia or dyspraxia; or across a range of subjects indicating global learning difficulties.
