  • 04 Nov 2020

This is the second in a series of five webinars from LLSENDCiC aiming to provide additional support to new-in-post SENCOs. The series will outline key elements of the SENCO role in this unique context.

This webinar will help new SENCOs gain confidence in an area which is central to SEN practice in schools and settings. It will address frequently asked questions including;

  • What is the Graduated Approach of Assess, Plan, Do, Review?
  • How do I actively involve teachers and develop their confidence in taking a lead role for children and young people requiring SEN support?
  • What systems and processes effectively facilitate the Assess, Plan, Do, Review cycle?
  • How to I ensure genuine participation of children and young people and their parents/carers in the Graduated Approach to ensure SEN support delivers on agreed outcomes?

Suitable for: SENCO
