New ALN Bill - have your say


The National Assembly’s Children, Young People and Education Committee are looking at the Welsh Government’s proposal for a new law: the Additional Learning Needs and Education Tribunal (Wales) Bill.

The proposed new law will replace the current term ‘Special Educational Needs’ (SEN) with ‘Additional Learning Needs’ (ALN); do away with statements and instead give every learner with ALN the same type of Individual Development Plan; require local government and health bodies to work more closely together; and improve the information and advice on offer to families.

The Committee have created a survey to give parents, families and carers the opportunity to tell them what you think about the way people and organisations working with children and young people should give them extra support with their learning, where they need this.

Almost everyone believes the system for helping children and young people with these needs must be improved and the Welsh Government recognises this too. Now that there is a proposed new law to consider, Assembly Members want to hear from as many people as possible.
