The Education (Additional Support for Learning) (Scotland) Act 2004, as amended, provides a framework for local authorities and other agencies to support all children with their learning.

It also set in place the processes for resolving differences for families and authorities – mediation, dispute resolution and the Additional Support Needs Tribunal.
