Special Educational Needs & Disabilities Co-ordinator (SENDco)
Hello, my name is Kathryn, I am the SENDco at Dan Dans. I have 12 years’ experience of working with children with SEN and I have 5 years’ experience in being a qualified as a SENDco.
I feel that parent partnership is paramount to your child’s individual development and I am here to support you and your child alongside your child’s key person with any concerns you may have about your child.
This could include any aspect of their development such as sleep, behaviour, eating, language and communication,
I work closely with you, (parents/carers and families) alongside your child's key person to identify any additional educational needs and implement strategies and next steps to support your children and their development at nursery and at home. If further support or advice is needed from outside agencies when supporting your child, this will always be discussed with you first.
We pride ourselves on the level of personal support that we provide to our children and their parents/carers and families, from a listening ear to accompanying and supporting parents at appointments and meetings.
We understand that all children are individual and display different behaviours at different points in their development, with this in mind we actively promote positive behaviour. These are some of the strategies we use:
- Sharing is caring
- Great turn taking
- Kind hands
- Visual supports e.g timer/reward chart communicate in print
For any further information regarding promoting positive behaviour please contact us and we will be happy to discuss any questions or queries you may have.
