Pre-school children with additional support needs

The Education (Additional Support for Learning) (Scotland) Act 2009 places a duty on health boards to inform local authorities of any children they are working with who have been identified as having a disability and may therefore need additional support.

We work in partnership with NHS Forth Valley to ensure that the best preparation is made for children before they start school.

A guide has been produced to explain how we are notified of any children aged 0-3 years who may have additional support needs when they start nursery or school.

Further information is available from the ASN Outreach Service, the ASN Officer or by telephoning 01786 233212.
