 SEND: Terms and Definitions DevelopmentWheel™                REF: DW30

A stand-alone reminder of important SEND terms and definitions

This new easy to use full-colour wheel twists around to reveal the section you need and has information on both sides.

Split into nine sections on each side, this moveable wheel twists round to the relevant section and has been designed for early years settings, including maintained nurseries, as a stand-alone reminder of important SEND terms and definitions. 

The role of SENCo is a demanding and complex one with a language of its own; this wheel will be particularly useful for new SENCos, but it is also a helpful quick guide to SEND terms and definitions for managers, teachers and all early years practitioners.

The front of the wheel highlights the role of the SENCo, the importance of partnership with parents and follows through the graduated approach as highlighted in the SEND code of practice.

The reverse of the wheel covers useful definitions, including the broad areas of need and the importance of the Equality Act 2010.

This simple to use tool measures approx 230mm in diameter (so they are easy to carry around) and it also serves as a reminder of the additional sources of funding that early years providers can access to support various groups of children.

'Customised' wheels delivery/schedule notice: 
We will always try to meet your needs in every way we can,
but  'customised wheels' can take at least four working weeks to produce following the approval of your artwork. This is due to the complex manufacturing process, part of which is done manually to construct the wheels. 

In busy periods (such as Feb - April during the government financial year end) and for large quantities, production can take longer. Please therefore build in plenty of time in your schedule of needs to ensure we can meet your  timescales
.  Sometimes we can get things done a bit quicker and we will always try, but the product is of a complex construction.
