Annex C – Different

Annex C – Different external agencies Introduction Local authorities provide a range of auxiliary services to help identify and meet the needs of children and young people. Local authority support services can provide further advice to teachers and ALNCos. This might include advice on techniques and strategies and appropriate ALP. Specialist Teachers Where there is, or appears to be, a noted sensory loss there should be access to specialist teachers of pupils with hearing, visual and communication challenges. This would include qualified teachers of those with Visual Impairment, teachers of the deaf and teachers holding the mandatory qualification in multi-sensory impairment. As well as observing the child or young person and contributing to the IDP, they may also liaise with other specialists in their field. Other specialist teachers can provide advice on specific challenges and advise the school and teachers on suitable strategies, required provision and contribute to the IDP. Educational Psychologists Educational psychologists can be a very important resource. They have a unique knowledge of the educational landscape and different settings within the education system. Education psychologists can apply psychological methods to support children and young people. This includes, for instance, knowledge around cognation, development, behaviour. They can provide help in clarifying problems and devising problem solving strategies. They can help to observe and assess children and young people, including techniques in managing behaviour and evaluating individual pupil progress. In addition to working with individual children and young people, an education psychologist can work with groups of pupils and teaching staff. Education psychologists may devise or recommend training for the relevant member of staff and the education institution. Educational psychologists can also build capacity across the whole setting to meet the needs of all their learners. When a school or FEI is considering referring the matter to the local authority, an education psychologists should be consulted before that referral is made. When a local authority has received a request to take over an IDP they must consult with an educational psychologist. Other local authority services Local authorities should also have wider support available through welfare and/or inclusion services. These services can work with the child, their Page | 208

parents and young people and education providers to help resolve wider issues, such as resolving attendance issues for all children. They can also work with a child, child’s parent and the education provider when the child is at serious risk of disaffection or exclusion. They may also support the child through providing advice and counselling on wider issues such as emotional wellbeing, mental health and other social factors such as housing. They may contact other agencies where required. These local authority support services may be required when there is a lack of expertise within the education setting and external advice and support is required. Careers advisors Careers advisors provide careers advice for children and young people. For most children and young people, including those with ALN, the careers advice that is normally provided is sufficient. However, for some children and young people they may need personalised or additional careers advice, this may be particularly important during transition. Speech and Language Therapists Speech and Language Therapists can advise on the speech and language provision which would be suitable. This would include the outcome, the input and timescales, as well as in some cases directly delivering the provision. Speech and Language Therapists may advise, devise and oversee the provision to be delivered by a suitable member of staff and monitor the progress of the child or young person. Occupational therapists Occupational therapist can advise on purposeful activity and play, to help a child or young person attain maximum levels of functional performance. Occupational therapists assess motor, sensory, perceptual, social, emotional and self-care skills. The occupational therapist can use therapeutic techniques (such as advising on equipment and environmental adaptions) where appropriate, to improve a child’s or young person’s ability to access the physical and learning environment. As well as in some cases directly delivering the provision, occupational therapists may advise, devise and oversee the provision to be delivered by a suitable member of staff and monitor the progress of the child or young person. Physiotherapists Physiotherapists can advise on physical approaches to promote, maintain and restore a child’s or young person’s physical, psychological and social wellbeing. As well as in some cases directly delivering the provision, physiotherapists may advise, devise and oversee the provision to be delivered by a suitable member of staff and monitor the progress of the child or young person.
