Identifying & Supporting SEND in the context of the EYFS Reforms

11am -12:30pm

Identifying and supporting children with SEND is crucial, but we can often become too focused on identifying delays or concerns rather than embracing the different ways children learn. This course explores how we can simultaneously support the areas of need while developing a deeper understanding of the child and their learning characteristics.

Dealing with Selective Mutism


Selective Mutism, sometimes called Situational Mutism, is an anxiety-based mental health disorder which usually commences in early childhood. Those with SM speak fluently in some situations but remain consistently silent in others. With early intervention the prognosis for recovery is good, but in some cases it may persist and last right through a child’s school life and sometimes even into adulthood.
