Many children and young people who have SEND may also have a disability under the Equality Act 2010 – that is ‘……a physical or mental impairment which has a long term and substantial adverse effect on their ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities.’
This definition provides a relatively low threshold and includes more children than many realise: ‘long-term’ is defined as ‘a year or more’ and ‘substantial’ is defined as ‘more than minor or trivial’ SEN Code of Practice (2014, p5).
