Inclusion is about all learners and about taking action to remove barriers to participation and learning. Inclusion also involves eliminating discrimination and promoting equality.
Additional Support for Learning
An additional support need comes from anything which is a barrier to learning. Most, or all, schools will have some children with additional support needs.
Information about this is contained in a booklet called In On the Act: Information For The General Public which is publised on the education authority website at www.edinburgh.gov.uk/InOnTheAct or contact the additional support for learning team on telephone number 01314693444.
