If 1 in 5 students has dyslexia, 1 in 10 has adhd or add,maybe 1 in 20 has asd (remember 3% are diagnosed with asd now and they are saying now that it’s the highest new rate of EHCPs etc and new female research etc), and anxiety/ ocd have increased I can imagine the number of learners who have needs might be quite high. However, surely staff should identify these needs in year 7 and put interventions/ support systems in place and write IEPs for them whilst monitoring their progress. To come to you in year 10 having done nothing for these learners is quite shocking. It isn’t the learner’s fault surely. The young person cannot surely achieve their potential without being given all of the appropriate tools.
