This draft Bill sets out Welsh Government's proposals for a new legislative system to support children and young people aged 0-25 who have additional learning needs.
The new system would replace the existing legislation
surrounding special educational needs and the assessment of
children and young people with learning difficulties and/or
disabilities in post-16 education and training.
The consultation document and response form are available on the
Welsh Government website and should be read
alongside the draft Bill and explanatory notes.
A draft Additional Learning Needs Code is currently being
developed and it is hoped that this will be available for
consultation in the autumn.
Welsh Government are also planning on holding engagement events
across Wales to enable children and young people to feed in their
views on the Bill.
