    NSA is really unhelpful and I would always change that as it tells you nothing about what the need is. MLD is not very common, are you sure there are global learning needs? i.e. struggling to learn in all areas of the curriculum? Does the CAT testing show you a particular area of need? This is probably a student who you could look into more and accurately identify their need. You could do a round robin to teachers and ask them what they assess as the greatest area of need. You can put MLD if they do struggle across the board, you do not have to have any kind of specialist assessment or diagnosis to identify a need, but you should be clear on what you are identifying as and why.
