Cognition and Learning (C+L) Needs


Children may show a slower rate of progress in some areas of their learning than their peers.  Some children may have more difficulties than their peers with:

·         Understanding

·         Thinking

·         problem solving

·         retaining information, concepts and skills

·         communicating


These may be general learning difficulties in acquiring and retaining a broad range of skills and concepts or they may have more specific learning difficulties (e.g. difficulties with maths or with literacy).
