WSS past event

This series of three webinars is an opportunity to reflect on and explore the importance of early identification of students’ needs. We develop an understanding of identification methods and consider how you can use assessment methods to develop learning led strategies.  Throughout this series we reflect on the graduated approach and how to embed this into all levels of responsiveness in your school.  

Each session shares best practice and reflects on case studies and differing approaches schools use. Participants are encouraged to consider their school’s practices and how early identification and intervention can support all students at every level. 

Sessions are suitable for practitioners across all phases of education from both mainstream and specialist settings.

 

Part 1: The first session focuses on what we mean by Early Identification of Need and include information and advice from a Senior Educational Psychologist and the President of the Association of Educational Psychologists (AEP), David Collingwood.

Part 2: The second webinar considers early intervention, looking at the key principles and reflecting on how to review the effectiveness and impact of early intervention. Case studies are presented with a focus on Speech Language and Communication Needs, featuring guest speaker Stephen Parsons, the UK representative for RADLD (Raising Awareness of Developmental Language Disorders) and chair of NAPLIC. Stephen has written a number of books focusing on language approaches to support children and young people. 

Part 3: The third webinar in this series considers how parents, carers and families can contribute to early identification of need. The National Network of Parent Carer Forum presents information on how parents and carers can be included at each step of your graduated approach. Case studies are presented to encourage participants to identify strategies they can use within their own settings to strengthen relationships with parents and carers when supporting students at the earliest stages. 

Suitable for: Assistant Head Teacher, Deputy Head Teacher, Head Teacher, Inclusion Manager/Leader, SENCO, Senior Leader, Teacher
