Extra help for pre-school children

Settings of pre-school children with SEND can use the Early Years Panel Referral Form to request home visits and extra teaching to help with child development. You can request help through the panel for Portage, Early Years SEND Inclusion, Early Years Autism and Early Years Inclusion Practitioners.

Requesting extra help

If you have spoken to your Area SENCO and implemented the advice from the new drop-in surgeries and you still think that a child needs extra help with their development, the Early Years Referral Panel will look at your application and decide which service is best placed to meet your needs.

The panel meets every two weeks during the school year to discuss referrals.

The child can be referred by their:

  • public health nurse (health visitor)
  • parents
  • providers
  • paediatrician
  • other professionals working with the child
