The focus of this Early Years section of the Inclusion Development Programme (IDP) is supporting children with speech, language and communication needs. It is relevant to all practitioners, teachers, managers and leaders working within the EYFS, with children from birth to the age of five.
This booklet should be used in a group with colleagues to form the basis of continuous professional development (CPD) sessions. This resource will help improve provision for all children, and will particularly support in developing more inclusive practice, especially for children with speech, language and communication needs.
Organised according to the four sections of the EYFS: ‘A unique child’; ‘Positive relationships’; ‘Enabling environments’; and ‘Learning and development’.
