Booking is open for the following two online sessions:

Preparing for Transition to Primary School

Parents and carers helped coproduce this session which will be supported by a member of the Early Years and Childcare team. We will explore what kind of information is helpful to find out from and share with school, ideas to help prepare for the start of term and considerations for children with SEND.

Sensory processing difficulties in the early years.  SENDIASS is hosting this relaxed online session which aims to help parents and carers understand how we use our senses to navigate everyday life and react to the world around us.  

The presentation will be delivered by a member of Suffolk’s Early Years and Childcare Service and will explain how children take sensory information in and relate it to the behaviour that comes out.  The session will also explore some simple strategies and resources that can support young children with sensory processing difficulties.

And our online session for parents and carers Drafting and finalising an EHC plan.  We will explore: the final stage of the EHC needs assessment process; naming a school; key sections of an EHCP and what a good plan looks like.  This aims to help parents and carers who have just had an EHC needs assessment agreed and those whose children already have an EHC plan. 

The session is not appropriate for parents who wish to find out more about the EHC needs assessment threshold and process – our videos and web information will help with this.
