DME stands for ‘dual and multiple exceptionality’ and is intended to describe those people who have both a disability or special educational need, and an area of exceptional performance or ability. Pupils with DME are likely to only have either their disability/special educational need OR their area of exceptional performance/ability recognised, potentially leading to under-achievement.

  • Why is it important in the school setting to support pupils who have DME?
  • How many pupils have DME and how can schools support them?


What are the potential benefits to you and the children or young people you work with?
