Cognition and Learning (C+L) Needs

Young people may show a slower rate of progress in some areas of their learning than their peers.  Some young people may have more difficulties than their peers with:

  • Understanding
  • Thinking
  • Problem-solving
  • Retaining Information, Concepts and Skills
  • Communicating

There may be general learning difficulties in acquiring and retaining a broad range of skills and concepts or students/young people may have more specific learning difficulties (e.g. difficulties with maths or with literacy).
