By the end of the Early Years Foundation Stage, children with SEND are, on average, one year behind their classmates.
This needs attention. We must shift our focus so that every child has access to a broad Early Years curriculum – but without adequate support, this is challenging to address. We can help.
The Early Years SENCO Short Course will examine SEN statutory requirements, learning disabilities and strategies for each condition, practical tools to support the SEN role, and essential relationship-building skills to help you work more efficiently with your peers and parents.
