An overview of how to identify and support children in early years who may have social communication and interaction needs.
What will I learn?
You will find out what to look for during observations in order to identify a child with social communication and interaction needs. We will look at communication skills, play and sensory needs.
There will be opportunities to discuss strategies with colleagues and to look at resources including visual supports. You will be encouraged to reflect on the learning environment in your setting to best support children's learning.
By the end of this workshop, you will:
- Be able to recognise a child with social, communication and interaction needs;
- Know who to contact for advice and support; and
- Learn some key strategies to use in your setting.
