WSS past event

This series of three webinars will be an opportunity to reflect on and explore the importance of early identification of students’ needs. We will develop an understanding of identification methods and consider how you can use assessment methods to develop learning led strategies.  Throughout this series we will reflect on the graduated approach and how to embed this into all levels of responsiveness in your school.  

Each session will share best practice and reflect on case studies and differing approaches schools use. Participants will be encouraged to consider their school’s practices and how early identification and intervention can support all students at every level. 

Sessions are suitable for practitioners across all phases of education from both mainstream and specialist settings.

 

Part 1: Wednesday 6th October 2021, 16:00-17:00

The first session will focus on what we mean by Early Identification of Need and include information and advice from a Senior Educational Psychologist and the President of the Association of Educational Psychologists (AEP), David Collingwood.

Attendees are asked to bring some information on their school/class context (such as numbers of students on the SEN Register and primary areas of need) to consider during the session.

Part 2: Thursday 21st October 2021, 16:00-17:00

The second webinar will focus on early intervention, looking at the key principles of early intervention and reflect on how to review the effectiveness and impact of early intervention. Case studies will be presented with a focus on Speech Language and Communication Needs, featuring guest speaker Stephen Parsons, the UK representative for RADLD (Raising Awareness of Developmental Language Disorders) and chair of NAPLIC. Stephen has written a number of books focusing on language approaches to support children and young people. 

Part 3: Friday 11th November 2021, 16:00-17:00

The third webinar in this series will consider how parents, carers and families can contribute to early identification of need. The National Network of Parent Carer Forum will present information on how parents and carers can be included at each step of your graduated approach. Case studies will be presented and participants encouraged to identify strategies they can use within their own settings to strengthen relationships with parents and carers when supporting students at the earliest stages. 

Suitable for: Assistant Head Teacher, Deputy Head Teacher, Head Teacher, Inclusion Manager/Leader, SENCO, Senior Leader, Teacher
