Students who are categorised as having a special education need category of ‘communication and interaction’ may:
- have difficulty understanding other people or mis-interpret what is said
- struggle to use language to express themselves
- have difficulty recognising words or with fine motor skills and co-ordination
- be easily distracted and struggle to cope with change in routines
- be upset by specific or unexpected stimuli e.g loud noise, alarms
Students may also have previously been identified as having speech, language and communication needs (SLCN),specific learning difficulties (SpLD), autistic spectrum disorders (ASD) or be hearing impaired (HI)
These may be as a result of conditions such as Specific Language Disorder, ASD/ASC (Autism), Asperger Syndrome, speech sound disorders/delay such as stammering or students may also present with difficulties that do not have a specific title.
Students are not automatically categorised with this need as a result of having English as an Additional Language although additional intervention may be offered from the hub to support accelerated understanding of English to allow students to access the school curriculum.
