This booklet contains materials designed for practitioners focuses mainly on the younger children in the EYFS (birth to 36 months), although there is much that will be of interest to practitioners working with the older children.
It is designed to be used in a number of ways:
- alongside the SEAD local authority (LA) trainers’ handbook as part of an LA-organised training course
- by individuals or groups of practitioners to aid reflective practice about supporting young children’s personal, social and emotional development
- by practitioners in discussion groups with parents.
