Early Years SEN

Practical training sessions to help colleagues support children with SEN

Under the SEND Code of Practice (0-25), early years settings have increased obligations for supporting the needs of pupils with SEN.

The stages of development differ greatly amongst young children - the line between poor behaviour, developmental delay and SEN is a fine one.

Use our practical training materials to help you provide support for young children with SEN. Training will cover:

  • early identification: how to identify specific additional needs of children in the early years
  • early intervention: advice for supporting these children to develop from an early age
  • collaboration: know how to work well with families to gain insight and better support children.
