Abstract: When we encounter someone who is 'in difficulty', the natural inclination is to 'do things for them' rather than helping them to confront the problem for themselves. With a similar sentiment, teachers and parents can easily take over the task of learning for pupils with special educational needs, rather than helping them to develop their own learning and problem-solving skills (Jones, Bill & Quah 1996). The results of research recently undertaken in Singapore and the United Kingdom (Jones & Quah 1998) reveal three qualitatively different levels of 'learning support' which are described below. Each level appears to have a different potential for empowering pupils to manage their own academic and social learning.
