Early Years SEND Team
We provide specialist support, advice and
training to promote early intervention and
inclusive practice for children aged 0-5 with
special educational needs and/or disability. Our team is made
up of early years specialists who support
individual children and also provide systemic
support to early years settings.
- We work with children with a range of
developmental difficulties, including those
with very complex needs
- We work with children at home as well as
in settings, carrying out observations,
assessments and modelling good practice
- Our work follows a multi-professional
approach with families at the centre
- We work
closely with professionals in schools and
other services to support children's transition

Access to support and advice about individual children from any of our teams in ISL is through a service request form with the exception of requests for statutory assessments of SEN which should go
through the established Hertfordshire processes.
The ISL teams will also attend Team Around The Family (TAFs) meetings when appropriate as part of the Common Assessment Framework and Early Support.
