Prior to this report, a study by Rutter et al. (1970) had enquired into the incidence of difficulties in learning in the school population. The report from this study showed teachers’ perceptions that, on average, 20 per cent of their students were experiencing difficulty of some kind. Since that time, the figure of 20 per cent has been used to estimate the number of children nationally who might experience difficulties. Of the total number of students, approximately 2 per cent are seen by policy-makers as likely to have difficulties which require additional or extra resources to be provided for them.

Mostly these statements referred to educational needs arising from sensory impairments or multiple and complex difficulties in learning. Some of the reasons given for supporting special provision were: * * * * * bullying in mainstream. Physically disabled children are often perceived to suffer at the hands of non-disabled peers. ‘Children can be treated like, and feel like, a freak if they are integrated as individual disabled children’ (letter from parent). One parent wrote: ‘The worry caused when your child is being bullied or feeling depressed affects the whole family.

Whether they are identified as needing additional support is very variable in different parts of the country. It is not unusual for schools to use formal curriculum attainment levels as a general marker in an attempt to identify children with learning difficulties or disabilities. In England, for example, practitioners will often identify someone as having learning difficulties if they are working two or more National Curriculum levels below the majority of their age group. The danger here is that this allows assessment designed for a different purpose to validate decisions which affect provision and children’s learning.
