This article has been brought to you by Slough Borough Council's Coordinator for Childcare Development within Early Years , Clare Thompson. This is for the attention of the All Early Years Practitioners.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis and school closures, SEBDOS have offered support to their current open cases via telephone and video conferencing. SEBDOS are pleased to say that quite a number of clients agreed to this and those children and their families are continuing to receive high quality and welcome support in these very difficult times. A few schools/settings have informed them that they would like some cases put on hold until everything re-open.
SEBDOS would like to advised settings that they are still accepting new referrals for both children and their families, so far they have had a good response but were anticipating greater numbers given the current unprecedented circumstances. They would urge schools and early years settings to consider new referrals, children and families who may not have been appropriate for referral in more settled times may well need that support now. Once they receive a referral from you that support can start straight away. Please refer any child or family to email@example.com.
SEBDOS have also offered online training via Zoom which a number of schools and settings have expressed an interest in. Currently they are offering live virtual bespoke training on ASD, ADHD, behaviour management and safeguarding for both teaching and support staff.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested or call 01753 476583.
