Early Years Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Team

The Early Years SEND team works for Blackpool Council and supports children aged under 5 who have significant additional needs.

We support children and their parents / carers both in the home environment and in settings including maintained and non-maintained pre-school providers and child minders.

To do this, the team consists of the coordinator, the Area SENCO, Advisory Teachers and Inclusion Practitioners and Blackpool Portage Service

We work in partnership with other professionals, including Speech and Language Therapists, Physiotherapists, Occupational therapists, Educational Psychologists, Health Visitors and Paediatricians.

The service continues with the child until they have been successfully transitioned into school. For some children, this may include support and advice during the autumn term, working jointly with the Inclusion Team.
