A unified legislative framework to support all children of compulsory school age or below with ALN, and young people with ALN in school or further education (FE) (rather than two separate systems of SEN up to age 16 and LDD for post-16, both of which are currently covered by separate legislation);

An integrated, collaborative process of assessment, planning and monitoring which facilities early, timely and effective interventions (including duties on health boards and local authorities to collaborate with each other through a statutory Individual Development Plan for each learner with ALN);

A fair and transparent system for providing information and advice, and for resolving concerns and appeals (including requiring local authorities to make arrangements for avoiding and resolving disagreements, revising a system found by previous reviews to be ‘complex, bewildering and adversarial’).
