Since its publication in 1994, the Code of Practice on the Identification and Assessment of Special Educational Needs has met with mixed reactions. Although welcomed in principle, its emphasis on procedures and its 'cost-neutral' status raised considerable doubt about the feasibility of its implementation. An NFER project set out to explore how LEAs and schools have interpreted and implemented the requirements of the Code two years after its introduction. This report describes some of the challenges and evaluates the effectiveness of responses made.
