SEN stands for Special Educational Needs. An SEN learner is someone who is unable to benefit from the school education made generally available for children of the same age without additional support or adaptation to classroom content.
It covers a range of needs, from physical and mental disabilities to cognition and educational impairments. Some of the most common learning disabilities we can see are visual and hearing impairments but SEN includes many other conditions we may not be able to see.
