Help learners of all abilities to succeed with our resources, assessments and interventions for SENCOs and teachers working with secondary students with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

In England, 1 in 5 children has special educational needs that affect their ability to learn – things like dyslexia, attention deficit disorder, behavioural problems or just finding it hard to understand new things. Schools across the UK use our assessments and intervention tools to assess their students’ needs, help them to improve and monitor their progress – so they can look forward to a bright future.

Assessments and interventions

From leading assessments to inform your Education, Health and Care Plans including the Wechsler Individual Achievement Test - Second UK Edition for Teachers (WIAT-II UK for Teachers), to providing evidence for access arrangement and DSA applications with the KeyMaths3 UK, or using the expertise of Aaron Beck to form the renowned Beck Youth Inventories®, our tools can help you look at the whole student.

For more information about SEND assessment, see our dedicated Special Educational Needs and Disabilities page.

Access arrangements

Before an examination or assessment, you can apply for access arrangements on behalf of candidates with special needs. You’ll need to give evidence of these students’ individual difficulties; our assessments will help you to do this.

Special requirements

Access arrangements are just one type of special exam requirements that your school or college can apply for on a student’s behalf – to make sure they get the chance to show what they can do.
