Additional support for learning: guidance on assessing capacity and considering wellbeing was published by the Scottish Government in 2017. It relates to the specific rights of children aged 12-15 with additional support needs, which were extended in early 2018. The extension of their rights was accompanied by safeguards in the form of assessing their capacity, and considering the impact on their wellbeing. This guidance aims to help local authorities and schools understand the extended rights and make decisions on capacity and wellbeing.
