What will I learn?

This NDNA course will make sure childcare practitioners truly understand what SEND is. It will challenge their views, so that they look beyond the needs that are visible. After all, any child may need a form of additional support. 

The course contains a number of reflection activities, so that the setting works together to give the right support to the children that need it most.

Course key topics:

  • Really understand SEND 
  • Improve knowledge of early identification 
  • The SEND graduated approach
  • Working in partnership with parents and other professionals
  • Further develop inclusive practice
