Integrated Services for LearningEarly 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 into school.

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.
