First Discoverers is a unique independent childcare resource run by Wesco, which posts informative articles every 2 weeks aimed at childcare professionals and parents alike.
The site has just published the last in a 9 part series focused on Special Educational Needs and Disabilities in early years. The articles have ranged from posts on Sensory and Physical needs, to ones exploring Dyslexia and Autism. As well as looking at how Special Educational Needs are managed within an educational environment, the series also looks to highlight the history of such impairments and how attitudes and approaches have developed over time.
First Discoverers is an incredible resource for anyone who works in childcare and wishes to further their knowledge, or simply anyone wishing to learn more about the children around them.
The Special Educational Needs series can be found here:
