We work collaboratively with you to design bespoke packages in Yorkshire.

Packages can include SEND staff training, identification and consultation on a whole range of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, as well as learner focused curriculum planning. We work with schools, academy trusts, education settings, teacher training centres, local authorities and other organisations, to helping them to develop their inclusion strategy.

OUR SIGNATURE PACKAGE

Specific Learning Difficulties package for schools

1/ Engagement

Understanding your needs and collecting background information.

2/ Staff Training on SpLD

One full day of whole staff training on Dyslexia Awareness and Creating a Dyslexia Friendly Learning Environment.

3/ Identification & Consultation

One full day during which six nominated pupils will be screened for dyslexia, feedback shared with parents, followed by consultation and action planning with the SENDCo and class teachers.

4/ Monitoring

Follow up contact to review impact and plan to build on successes.

A flexible package to suit your needs

The package can be altered to include more training days for varying audiences (for example, school governors), or additional pupil screenings or more in depth SENDCo consultation sessions for other cases in school. We’re flexible and dynamic-if you have another need or idea, talk to us.

OUR OTHER SERVICES

Learning Difficulties Services

We can offer other services to support you to develop consistent, high quality, inclusive provisions; either delivered by ourselves, or with our experienced specialist partners in allied professions. Sourcing service providers can be time consuming and cause uncertainty, but we aim to be your first point of contact in which you can have confidence.

We only work with known and vetted professionals whose high standards and values align with ours and yours. This means you can be assured that the quality of any service you receive through SEND Solutions is well informed and of the highest standard.
