Supporting Children with Potential ASN in Early Years

Have you signed up yet for the ASN training “Supporting children with potential ASN in Early Years” which will be held on the inset day on Monday 18th October?

We are delighted to be working in partnership with both Aberlour and the Inclusion and Wellbeing Service for this training. Practitioners from these services will be sharing their knowledge and expertise with attendees during the different sessions.

Session 1 will be delivered by members of the Early Years Central Team and this will focus briefly on initial steps in supporting children with potential ASN in the early years.

Here we will think about and discuss:

  • Different stages of intervention
  • Communication
  • Sensory
  • Behaviour
  • Referral Process
  • Support available
  • Child’s Plan
  • Building positive relationships with parents and families

Session 2 will be delivered by practitioners from Aberlour and during this we will focus on nurture, attachment and environments.

This session will incorporate a brief overview of:

  • Early Brain Development
  • Why our feelings matter
  • Why our interactions matter
  • The Five to Thrive Approach
  • Why the words we use matter
  • Why the environment matters
  • What to do if it’s not working
  • Importance of reflective practice

Session 3 will be delivered by practitioners from the Inclusion and Wellbeing Service and here we will focus on aspects of challenging behaviour and restorative practice in early years.

During this session we will reflect on and discuss:

  • Behaviour as communication
  • Attachment
  • Stress responses
  • Triggers
  • Conflict cycle
  • Strategies to support young people
  • Sensory processing

We hope as many settings as possible will access this training so please sign up via CPD Manager. A number of settings have requested input to support children with potential ASN and it is hoped this training will help practitioners to develop further awareness of strategies to support children who potentially have additional support needs.

To have maximum impact it is recommended that all, or almost all, practitioners in a setting complete this training.

If you are not allocated a space, don’t despair this training will run again on both the February and May inset days.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
