You will understand the importance of early identification and intervention for children with SEND

As a SENCo in an early year setting, you are responsible for ensuring children with SEND are getting the support they need and having their needs met. There may be times when the support the child needs is more than the early years setting can provide. This short course will describe the action you will need to take when this happens, the type of professionals you may need to work with outside of the setting, and how EHC plans work
