A child is said to experience special education needs (SEN) if he or she finds is more difficult to learn than other children of the same age. For about one in five children the difficulty will only be temporary and overcome by extra help. For example, the child may have difficulties with reading, writing, speaking or maths work. For about 2% of children the difficulty may be longer term and might be due to: A physical disability; A problem with speech, sight or hearing; A learning difficulty; Emotional or behavioural difficulty; A medical or health problem. In these cases it is sometimes necessary to complete a statutory assessment, which may result in a statement of Special Educational Needs or Note in Lieu.
