Designed specifically for those involved in pre-school education, including nursery teachers, learning support assistants and helpers in a range of provisions, this handbook has been updated to enable carers to comply with the latest requirements of the Code of Practice and to prepare for an OFSTED inspection. It will assist in the identification and assessment of young children with special educational needs. The book provides a ready-made system for record keeping at each stage of assessment and provides a comprehensive system for monitoring and evaluation.
