To do this we think it is important to place your child at the heart of their support plan. We think it is important that we all understand each other’s role in supporting your child to be as independent as possible.
The new Additional Learning Needs Act places your child at the heart of their support plan. In Wales, we adopt a person centred approach to help us to do this.
Schools and Settings in Wales are currently using a new approach called Step-back to help them to embed a person-centred approach.
It is important to us that everyone, head teachers, class teachers, teaching assistants, parents/carers and most importantly your child understand what we mean by the concept of Step-back and the part each of us play in Stepping-in and Stepping-back to enable children and young people to be independent learners.
