Description of activity
Our role is to support children under 5 who live in Barnet who are likely to have Special Educational Needs (SEN). We support children at home and in their early years settings until they start at a maintained school setting.
Our role includes supporting Private, Voluntary and Independent (PVI) early years settings in Barnet, (who take children on government funding) to include and support all children with Special Educational Needs.
We receive referrals directly or through the weekly multi-agency Child Development Service Intake meeting. This meeting is a single referral route to access support from speech therapy, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, paediatricians and specialist teaching (including the Barnet Early Years SEND Advisory Team). With parental permission, professionals can refer children to this meeting where the referral is discussed and appropriate services are then allocated. We also accept referrals directly from parents.
