How to refer
We accept referrals from parents, health professionals and education professionals.
We might ask nurseries or preschools and health professionals for more information so that we can decide what level and type of support that we can offer your family and your child.
Complete a service request form
ISL Baseline Assessment Form for School Staff only
For children accessing a pre-school educational setting, at the point of referral the service would normally expect to see that different provision has been made for the child by staff, implementing the SEND Code of Practice requirements of assess, plan, do and review. If this intervention has not had a positive impact on a child’s development it may then be time for a service request to be considered or made. Advice can be sought as to appropriate next steps for the child from the local 0 – 5 Lead Practitioners or team members.
Your child does not need a medical diagnosis or an EHCP to be referred to the team - the Early Years SEND team will provide support based on your child’s level of need.
