Children with additional support needs

Information about the education options for children with additional support needs.

Our Education department takes an inclusive approach to support and meeting learners' needs as we know some children and young people benefit from specialist teaching methods. Our professional staff work closely with children and their families to look at the different arrangements that they might be able to access.

There are a number of different specialist services across East Renfrewshire to meet the range of learners' needs. These are:

  • Isobel Mair School
  • Pre School Assessment and Development Unit (PSADU)
  • Carlibar Communications Centre (CCC)
  • Williamwood Communication Support Service
  • Social, Emotional, Behavioural Needs (SEBN) Outreach Support Service
  • Sensory Support Service

Services might be provided on a full-time or part-time basis, or on an outreach basis alongside attendance at one of our mainstream schools. The patterns of attendance will be designed to offer the best support for our learners.
