ASVCE Health & Social Care - Co-ordination of services.

Extracts from this document...


ASVCE Health & Social Care Task 8: Co-ordination of services My setting is linked with SENCO (Special Education Needs Co-ordinater) and Ofsted to ensure the child receives the rights it deserves i.e. education. In the project I am to show how the role of each service and how it is linked to my setting. Each year, parents of children with disabilities have the important responsibility of working with school personnel to develop an appropriate educational program individualised to their child's needs. With the increase the increase in inclusive practices and a growing awareness of the rights of all children, perceptions of special educational needs (SEN) are changing in the community in general and in education in particular. These changing perceptions are reflected in government and legislative contexts. Guidance materials for special educational needs co-ordinators (SENCO) outline the professional knowledge, understanding, skills and attributes that are required to carry out the key task of the role in order to raise achievements and to improve the quality of education provided for people with special educational needs. ...read more.


At Stage 3: 1. The SENCO still takes a leading role but shares responsibility for the child with the external specialist services. 2. The SENCO should inform the ELB when a child moves to stage 3. 3. The SENCO will work with the external specialists and the classroom teacher to draw up a new EP for the child, considering different teaching approaches, support materials and ICT. 4. The SENCO will make arrangements for monitoring progress against the EP, and will arrange a review of progress, usually within a term. At Stage 4: 1. The SENCO will be asked for details of the assessment of, and provision for the child's special needs during his time at the school. At Stage 5: 1. The SENCO, or the class teacher, will be required to attend the annual review of a statemented child. 2. The SENCO will be asked by the principal to provide written information about the child. ...read more.


They realise everyone has strengths and skills and will help children, young people and families build on these. They will always take into account the child's and families religious, cultural and social background. And also work closely with children, parents, relatives and carers to provide help, advice, support or information about other services. If my setting senses that a child appears to be at risk because of neglect or abuse, social services and the manager of my setting will investigate and make sure that the child is safe. Social Services and my setting will work together and will carry out a thorough investigation, talking with families, doctors, health visitors and teachers. And if, however they have special concerns about the child, they may hold a Child Protection Conference. This is a meeting with the family, Social Worker and other professionals to try to find a solution to the difficulties at home and will always try to work with families to support and help them cope. In conclusion, I have learnt services that interacts with my setting and how they work together to ensure every child receives special educational care. ...read more.
