Essential information for parents and carers

  • The outcome is best in younger children and those who have been out of school for a short time.
  • A change of school is usually unhelpful because the problems tend to recur in the new setting.
  • Parents need to work together and agree a firm and consistent approach to their child’s difficulties.
  • It is crucially important for there to be good communication with the school
