nasen has produced a suite of resources to support Early Years practitioners to work effectively with children with SEND. The resources include webcasts, miniguides, online training and CPD materials. They can be accessed via the nasen website.
In this policy paper from the SEN Policy Research Forum, leading experts in SEND discuss current issues, including involving schools and families in commissioning, educational psychology and Alternative Provision. Some creative solutions are detailed.
These training materials were commissioned in response to a Government recommendation, following the Lamb Inquiry (2009)
The materials consist of five learning modules, each of which focuses on one of the above areas of special educational needs and disability (SEND).
Although some of the terminology has changed, the advice is still relevant and useful.
