EarlyYearsSENDResources

We are looking for short case studies from Early Years settings to use in our new Early Years SEND resources, and we have free gifts to say 'thank you' for the first twenty we receive.

Hopefully you have heard or read about nasen's new Early Years SEND project, in which we are developing a range of resources aimed at everyone working with children aged 0-5, to support them to offer effective provision for children with SEND.

As part of this project, we are creating webcasts, miniguides and face-to-face training materials specific to the sector. We want to make these resources as relevant and 'real' as possible, so we are looking for anyone who works in the EY sector to send us a short case study, showcasing effective practice that has impacted on children with SEND and their families. There is a simple form to complete and further information here.  Case Study Template

As an incentive (we know how busy you are!) we are pleased to be able to offer two free gifts, kindly donated by our sponsors: Childcare.co.uk has offered a month's Gold membership (worth £24.99), and Nursery World has offered a book from their 'Practical Pre-School Books' range (worth up to £20) both going to the senders of the first twenty case studies.

We really hope that you will be able to contribute to this exciting new project, and we look forward to hearing from you (all the information you need is on the document above).
