Area SENCo Team in partnership with ASD Service and Speech and Language Service
Communication and interaction – how to include and support children with communication needs
This training will enable your SENCo to improve their knowledge, skills and understanding in supporting children with identified communication and interaction challenges.
This training will enable your SENCo to gain in confidence in their lead role in supporting your staff team to implement the SEND Code of Practice effectively for children with communication and interaction needs.
The Area SENCos will provide a tool so the SENCo can lead a staff meeting and evaluate how the setting can develop further to be more proactive and anticipatory in planning ahead for children with communication and interaction challenges.
ASD Service as part of this training session will provide the AET Level 1 ASD training and your SENCo will receive a specific certificate for this attendance.
If your SENCo has attended AET Level 1 ASD training previously no problem...use it as an opportunity to sharpen their knowledge, skills and confidence so they can implement ASD awareness within the whole staff setting team.
SENCos gaining AET Level 1 and sharing within the staff team shows your setting is being anticipatory of the possibility of having a child with social communication/asd and will help them be better included from the start and achieve better outcomes.

Links to SEND Code of Practice 2015 (5.3):
‘Providers MUST have arrangements in place to support children with SEN or disabilities. These arrangements should include a clear approach to identifying and responding to SEN. The benefits of early identification are widely recognised – identifying need at the earliest point and then making effective provision, improves long term outcomes for children.’
