Successful Partnerships = Successful Development. Working together with parents and carers to identify and support children with SEND

children with SEND developing a send friendly environmentThis course is designed to support practitioners in understanding the development patterns of children with SEND. Practitioners will learn how to track the development of children with SEND, finding the gaps and how to fill them by scaffolding learning. The course also supports practitioners in having conversations with parents and carers about children’s development and helps them to understand how to have ‘difficult conversations’ and how these can impact on parents/ carers. Ultimately practitioners will leave the session feeling confident in identifying and supporting children with SEND and working together with their parents and carers.

The session is aimed at practitioners, managers and SENCO’s.

This course supports you in:

  • Knowing how children with SEND develop and how to map this on a developmental profile
  • Being able to identify gaps in development and put strategies in place to scaffold learning
  • Knowing about the Early Support Developmental Journal and how it can be used to track the development of children with SEND
  • Being confident when sharing concerns about development with parents and carers
  • Understanding how parents/carers may react to ‘difficult conversations’
  • Having an understanding of the feelings and reactions of families to ‘difficult news’
  • Knowing how to support parents and carers to move forward together
