Additional support for learning: A guide for parents and carers

Our easy to read guide to additional support for learning in Scotland explains your and your child’s rights, local authorities’ duties, what to expect at meetings and much more.

We have a wide range of resources to help you understand children’s rights to support at school and nursery, the rights of parents and carers, and responsibilities of professionals. We’ve also collected information about other useful organisations and links that can help you.
