The ISL Early Years SEND team provides specialist support, advice and training to promote early intervention and inclusive practice for children aged 0-5 with special educational needs and/or disability. The 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 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.
