The Early Years Inclusion Support Team (EYIST) works to support the inclusion of young children in early years settings who have a range of SEND that may be affecting their learning and progress.
This includes working with early years settings in schools as well as private, voluntary, independent nurseries and childminders.
The team offers support in spotting needs early and planning for additional needs at the Early Years Foundation Stage. It works with early years professionals to remove barriers to inclusion and help make sure all children are fully included in the day-to-day activities at their setting.
It is a multi-disciplinary team that includes:
- advisory teachers
- early years specialist practitioners
- health professionals
