Outlines some of the recent changes in the pattern of provision for pupils with special educational needs (SEN), with particular emphasis on incidence, prevalence and placement. Key points which emerge from the summary are the increased inclusion in mainstream schools of pupils with SEN, the downward trend in the number of pupils being placed in special schools, the apparent trend towards a more multiply-disabled special school population, and a sharp increase in the number of pupils being excluded from mainstream education. In addition, there are indicators that the most severely intellectually disabled are the least likely to be included in mainstream school provision.
