Main Services Provided

The Special Education Service provides support throughout the SELB, for pupils with special educational needs. It does so in adherence to statutory obligations and time limits, as set out in legislation.

Pre-School Children:-
The aim of the Pre-school Service is to promote the optimum development of the pre-school child (aged two or above) with special educational needs by providing teaching/advisory support to children, families and nursery/playgroup/school staff. Close links are developed and maintained with other professionals working with the children in order to provide the most effective support package.
Pre-school children referred to the Service will be visited in their home on a regular weekly/fortnightly basis, where appropriate teaching, advice and support will be provided. Information about the childs particular SEN and the implications which this may have on the childs development and education will also be made available
