(UK) Lewes: SPED services expand; "increase in numbers of children" with ASD

Oct 21, 2021, Sussex Express: Changes to SEN facility at Lewes primary school signed off
SE England

Plans to open up a special education centre in Lewes to a wider range of pupils have been given the go ahead by a senior county councillor. On Monday (October 18), East Sussex County Council’s lead member for education Bob Standley signed off on plans to extend admissions at a specialist speech, language and communication centre at Wallands Community Primary School to pupils with autism spectrum conditions. The council says the move comes as the centre’s numbers have been under capacity since 2019/20, while at the same time there has been an increase in the numbers of children with a “primary need” of autism spectrum conditions…. The changes will come into effect on September 1 2022, the beginning of the next academic year.
