Many children and young people have special education needs i.e. learning difficulties, communication, emotional or behavioral difficulties, or intellectual, sensory or physical impairments.
Special education is the education of students with special needs in a way that addresses the students' individual differences and needs. Ideally, this process involves the individually planned and systematically monitored arrangement of teaching procedures, adapted equipment and materials, accessible settings, and other interventions designed to help learners with special needs achieve a higher level of personal self-sufficiency and success in school and community.
It is the provision of extra help, adapted programmes, learning environments, or specialized equipment or materials to support children and young people with their learning and help them participate in education.
