The aim of this course is to introduce Early Years settings to the SENDCo role and understand the process of early identification and assessment of children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).
The 3 hour training session will outline the main role of the SENDCo, a setting's responsibilities to children with SEND and the use of the graduated approach. There will be practical activities to enable practitioners to feel confident working closely with the child/parents, supporting colleagues and coordinating the setting's response to children with SEND.
By the end of the training participants will:
- Have a clear definition of SEND and understand the role of the SENDCo in an early years setting
- Understand the setting’s responsibilities to children with SEND and how to identify when to begin the referral process
- Understand how to use the graduated approach and work with parent’s to keep the child central to the assessment
- Understand the Local Offer and Education, Health and Care Plans (EHC Plans)
