We have a process whereby teachers refer any student who they have concerns over regarding literacy, organisation or handwriting to the ALS department for further assessment / investigation. This results in approx 60 students per year being diagnosed as having an SpLD post 16. Often this diagnosis is not a surprise to the student or their family but a welcome relief that thye can now access support and have an explaination for their difficulties.
