Welsh Government ALN Study

Welsh Government has commissioned Arad Research and the University of South Wales to conduct research into the systems in place to support children and young people with Special Educational Needs (SEN) and Learning Difficulties and Disabilities (LDD).

As part of this research, they are gathering the views of professionals who are involved in processes relating to SEN, Additional Learning Needs and / or LDD. If you work in the field of ALN and would like to contribute you can do so at the links below. It should take around 15-20 minutes to complete: 

As the system is changing, this survey focuses on gathering professionals’ views and experiences of the current system for children and young people with SEN and LDD. Your views will help Welsh Government understand if changes are moving in the right direction. It includes questions on the current SEN/LDD system as a whole and on specific aspects of the system, including assessment, planning, transition, avoiding and resolving disagreements and partnership working.

Your responses to the survey will be reported anonymously. To view the Welsh Government’s privacy notice for this survey which sets out how your data will be used, please click here.
