Also the unidimensionality of the ‘continuum of needs’ is seen to be restrictive. Current thinking suggests the need to shift more towards a multiaxial approach in which account has to be taken of types of educational support available to a school and the levels of educational needs of a given pupil. There is a widely held consensus view on these points, though terminology may differ from com­ mentator to commentator. For example, Center (1987), working in the Austra­ lian context, proposed a model for delivering special education services em­ bracing eight levels of service delivery.

Among them was the desirability that such support be provided within the regular school system. The integration of such individuals is seen as an equity issue which few educationalists would dispute. However, the debate is somewhat obscured by a tendency for protagonists to adopt polemical rather than empirical stances. There can be no doubt, however, as to the almost universal advocacy for the inclusion of children with special needs within the mainstream of educational provision. One of the most significant statements on this theme is the Salamanca Statement (UNESCO 1994).

The legislation should reflect a more dynamic view of ‘special needs’ and the support systems required to circumvent handicap. At the time of writing, the Scottish Parliament has been established with fully devolved powers except for foreign, defence and macro-economic policies. A new bill is to be laid before the Scottish Parliament early in the year 2000 seeking to redress some of the anomalies and confusions which presently exist. Assessing ‘special educational needs’ The Record (or ‘Statement’) of Special Educational Needs is a legal document prescribing the circumstances under which such a record may be drawn up; de­ scribing the nature of a child’s needs; how these should be met and involving the parents in the whole process.
