DME and High Ability learners

DME and High Ability learners

The difference between High Learning Potential (HLP) and Dual or Multiple Exceptionality (DME) is that learners with DME are high achieving but also have barriers to learning or additional challenges.

According to Potential Plus UK, around 85.550 students a year have HLP in UK and DME learners are a distinct minority within this. These learners often struggle to have their needs met within mainstream education.

Many high achieving students struggle between their ability level and their age of maturity, which in mainstream schooling can result in bullying and disengagement. At Nisai, we timetable our learners at their current working level rather than their age. This enables them to study alongside learners who may be older and at a higher maturity level than they are. Coupled with well-paced, interactive lessons, this creates the ideal working environment for HLP and DME learners.

Our teaching staff are all subject specialists and have received supplementary training to support students with additional needs. Our dedicated Customer and Student Support Team can offer support outside the classroom for both parents and schools.

"Senior leaders have very effectively created a culture in which they and staff have high aspirations for their learners."
