Recognising and supporting children with SEN
Children with special educational needs have the right to education alongside others and also not to be at a disadvantage due to their needs when accessing services. With appropriate support and a planned provision, children with SEN can thrive and achieve their full potential. This CACHE endorsed program revolves around the topic of special educational needs (SEN) in a childcare atmosphere. Acquaint yourself with knowledge regarding Down’s Syndrome, ADHD, Cerebral Palsy, and Asperger’s Syndrome, along with the key legislation governing practice in this field. Explore the role of the setting SENCO and how practitioners can understand, support, and provide for individual SEN children.
You will learn that various pieces of legislation provide legal rights for disabled children and give responsibilities to providers of services for children and young people
You will learn about ‘child- and young person-led’ models of delivery where the service is influenced by the people using it
You will learn that, as with all children, observation is a key starting point in making an assessment of children’s needs, learning, and development
