Experience of including people with special educational needs and disabilities

As a Registered childminder, I aim to follow the requirements of the EYFS (2014) and the childcare register (2012) and provide an inclusive environment for all children and their families. I am also required to comply with the requirements of the Equality Act (2010) and the SEND (special educational needs and disabilities) code of practice (2014). I have there put the following procedure in to place. 

 

If I think a child has a special need or disability I will;

*Use the 2 year check to highlight if I believe a child is falling behind in any prime areas learning. 

*Discuss with the parents the issues and ask if the parents want to take it forward and if not then I would, by contacting the SENCO (special educational needs co-ordinator) through the FIS (family Information service).

*I would then support the child through any support offered.

 

When caring for all children I will;

*Value and acknowledge children individuality and help them to feel good about themselves, focusing on the positive things each child can do .

*Seek information from parents about the Childs routine, their likes and dislikes, family, religion and beliefs.

*Provide individual support depending on the Childs needs.

*Adapt all activities to enable all children to take part providing a wide range of resources and activities which will reflect the diversity of our local area.

*Lead by example and challenge any form of prejudice.

*Encourage children confidence and independence and to respect each other as individuals.

*I will risk asses to ensure the safety of a child with special educational needs whilst continuing to supervise other children in my care.

*Attend appropriate training and ensure I have the skills and knowledge needed to support children and there families.

 

If I believe a child needs additional support I will speak to parents and ask permission to approach agencies which will support their child. I will follow the graduated approach laid out in the department for education SEND code of practice to ensure that every child receives the best possible care and learning practice.
