Young children with a range of special educational needs can find transition to a new setting very difficult. However, there are key elements which they will all require support with. If we address these issues then the transition can be more effective and less stressful for everyone!
The aim of the course:
To enable practitioners to prepare their learning environments and to anticipate initial behaviours of children with substantial speech, language and communication delay, social communication difficulties, poor self regulation developmental coordination disorder and attachment difficulties.
The course will include a practical ideas pack.
For those who attend the course there will be a free drop in consultation with Helen Bibby to seek further advice for children with additional needs who will be transitioning to a new childminder, room, year or setting/school
- Exploring how young children with a range of additional needs may misinterpret the social cues, learning environments and activities they are being asked to do.
- Identifying the child’s unique learning style and how this understanding can be used to create a more inclusive learning environment.
- Understanding how children with additional needs organise their thoughts and actions
- Understand and identify stress and anxiety in young children.
- How the brain processes stress and anxiety.
- Practical ideas to reduce anxiety, support sensory processing difficulties, support self regulation, organising of thoughts, and developing working memory and understanding.
