Get your free SEN and Disability in the Early Years Toolkit
Monday, 3 August 2015
Stay updated with the latest reforms and get practical ideas for how to implement them in your day to day job.
The Council of Disabled People and charity, 4 children, have written a new practical guide to help early years education professionals and practitioners to implement the SEN (special educational needs) and disability reforms. RNIB also contributed to the development of the toolkit.
Each section of the toolkit is based on the statutory requirements and guidance from the early years and SEN and disability frameworks. It draws on a range of practice guidance to provide an accessible guide to SEN and disability in the early years to support better provision for young children.
There are 10 sections in the toolkit covering:
FAQs statutory requirements
Universal inclusive practice
First concerns and early identification
SEN Support in the Early Years
The role of the early years SENCO (Special Educational Needs Coordinator)
How to involve parents and carers
Working with other professionals
EHC (education, health and care) needs assessments and plans, and
Transitions for children with SEN and disabilities
