Analysis of Additional Needs (AANT)

The Analysis of Additional Needs (AANT) is a person-centred, efficient consultation process that supports both early intervention and identification of needs, as well as unpicking and more complex situations. The AANT allows colleagues from all kinds of educational settings to take part in a rapid, evidence-based, video consultation process with an educational psychologist (EP). The aim is to help educational professionals understand their learners’ needs and find new ways of supporting them, based on what is already known about them. Consultees complete an online form, undertake a consultation with an EP and then receive a concise, solution-focused report containing the practical next steps and ideas that were discussed. To find out more about the AANT and how to book one, visit the AANT pages on the Suffolk County Council website.
