The Welsh Government is changing the way that children and young people with special educational needs (SEN) will be supported. The new system defines SEN as Additional Learning Needs (ALN). The change from SEN to ALN will take 3 years to implement.
From September 2021, the current system for special educational needs will be replaced with a new and reformed system called Additional Learning Needs and Educational Tribunal (Wales) Act, known as ALNET.
The following information guides, posters and animations for parents/carers and children have been produced to explain the changes that are taking place.
If you would like more information, please contact Mrs Element (ALNCo). There is also a Cardiff Council ALN Helpline for parents/carers if you require further advice or information about the ALN system and processes
