A teacher’s guide on what to do about SEN concerns


This is a 9 page guide for teachers/ SENCOs/ school leaders on what to do if there is a child in their class/ school whom they suspect has special educational needs that have not yet been diagnosed. I list the most common specials needs that present in schools and the process that should be followed with regard to creating a support plan and the appropriate referral options for professional interventions such as  psychology, occupational therapy, speech and language etc. I also include sample letters that the school can write to other professionals requesting assistance.
