How will I recognise if my child has special needs?
Special needs are not always easy to identify and children quickly adapt to cope with their difficulties. You may notice your child has difficulty with:
all school work
specific areas of school work such as reading, writing, numeracy, understanding or processing information
self-expression or expressing and understanding what others are saying
listening or paying attention
establishing relationships, making friends or relating to adults
behaving appropriately in or out of school
motor skills: may be impaired or slow
sensory or physical needs
a combination of any of the above.
