Supporting Children in Kent with Special Educational Needs and Disability

Early Years Training For Professionals

The Early Years Specialist Teacher for Sevenoaks will deliver the Kent Core training sessions for Early Years Staff which are;

  • ASD in the Early Years - a two day course which examines the different theories associated with autism, supports staff to understand how ASD impacts on communication and social interaction and looks at the impact the environment can have on a child with ASD with a focus on practical strategies and interventions to support
  • Emotional Regulation - Supporting Children Where Behaviours Challenge - a day course that focusses on how to identify difficulties children may be having, how the setting environment can impact on children's behaviour and looking at strategies to help build your confidence to support children with emotional regulation difficulties
  • Small Steps for Great Gains - Collaboratively Supporting 2 Years Olds with Complex Needs - this day course aims to increase practitioner's understanding of what 'complex needs' means when applied to 2 year olds in a mainstream pre-school environment, to provide support to be able to use effective systems to gather the necessary information to enable the appropriate planning for individual children with complex needs and to prepare the environment to promote children's individual development alongside their peers

A variety of other training sessions may be delivered by the Early Years Specialist Teacher and more information can be found on the Sevenoaks STLS Settings training calendar
