Education for children with special needs
Some children may have a learning difficulty which means they need a special educational provision.
A learning difficulty is where a child or young person finds it much more difficult to learn than most students of the same age, or if they have a disability that makes it hard or impossible to use a school or college’s facilities.
How we can help
You can find out about the different ways we can help Bristol students and their families on the Findability website, which covers education, health and care plans, funding, schools, support services and travel arrangements.
