About 20% of all children have special educational needs at some time in their school careers, and about 2% have needs which cannot be met within their schools' normal resources. For them, local education authorities have a duty to assess their needs and provide extra resources or places in special schools. But although substantial efforts have been made by LEAs in providing help for these children, more still needs to be done. The results of 61 audits show that most LEAs are too slow in issuing statements, and that many have yet to define what a special need is. The Audit Commission advises that LEAs should review their progress in the area of special needs and compare their performance with the results given in this report.
