Event description
Bespoke Consultation or Forum to support SENCOs in meeting the needs of young people with additional learning needs.

About this event

Every school and FE Provider in Leicestershire is entitled to a free two-hour consultation to discuss learning needs including dyslexia and dyscalculia, with a highly experienced Specialist Advisory Teacher and assessor.

It is expected that SENCOs primarily, possibly with a class teacher or TA, and Inclusion Managers will take up this offer.

Areas of discussion are often around:

• literacy difficulties and dyslexia awareness

• maths learning difficulties and dyscalculia

• identification of needs – making and evidencing adjustments to meet needs

• beyond mainstream interventions for reading and /or spelling

• creating learning profiles for those older students who may be disengaging due to unidentified learning needs

• a named child/student’s learning profile

Our Core Offer has been running for three academic years and the response from both new and experienced SENCOs, teachers, and support staff has been over-whelming positive.

Comments over the past year:

• Both the consultations we’ve had this year have been brilliant! Your knowledge and advice are excellent. Thank you very much.
