This year also marks the silver jubilee of the foundation of the Scottish Support for Learning Association, a uniquely Scottish organisation that has already picked up the challenge for a review. It has just established an open "special needs summit" in Aviemore at the end of April.
Where the association and Professor Thomson perhaps differ is rather than starting with a new consolidated Education Act led from "the top", they see a need for debate and proposals driven by all those involved in support for effective learning and the welfare of learners. Contributions to this debate will be welcome from all quarters.
