The Education (Additional Support for Learning) (Scotland) Act 2004 became law in November 2005. The ASL Act places a duty on Stirling Council Children’s Services to identify and meet the additional support needs of children and young people. We do this through the Staged Intervention process.
The Act resulted in new procedures and guidance with training for all establishments on the implementation of the Act. We have also provided new resources and information. We have developed a CD-ROM and an ASL website where parents can get a range of information at www.stirling.gov.uk/asl
You can get more information, including copies of the CD-ROM from your nursery or school. Victoria Carr is our ASL Co-ordinator and can be contacted on 01786 443389 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
