Support for pre-school children who have special educational needs and disability (SEND).
The Special Educational Needs Early Years Inclusion Service (SENEYIS) provides support for pre-school children who have special educational needs and disability (SEND).
We support the educational development of pupils with SEND arising from one or more identified learning need in the areas of cognition and learning (C&L), speech, language and communication (SLCN) and/or social, behavioural, emotional and wellbeing (SBEW).
We do so by working in partnership with children, early educational setting/pre-school staff, parents or carers, and other professionals.
We provide support for children in early education and pre-school settings who are in their final pre-school year (the school year in which a child reaches 4 years old) and children who are in their pre-nursery year (the school year in which a child reaches 3 years old). We also support children who have opted to defer starting primary school.
We offer Information, advice, training, and guidance to families, carers and early education setting/pre-school staff.
