'Paving the Way': The Early Intervention Project's new resource

 

The Early Intervention Project have released a free resource for commissioners and Heads of Service across education, health and social care - 'Paving the Way: How to develop effective local services for children with learning disabilities and behaviour that challenges'. 

                                               

'Paving the Way' was developed by the Early Intervention Project with input from children and young people, families, professionals, commissioners and academic experts to identify the key features of good local behaviour support for children. Each feature forms part of ‘the path to better outcomes’ and has a case study to illustrate it.

The resource describes how to develop effective local services for children with learning disabilities and behaviours described as challenging.  It includes examples of good practice, outcomes and costings, and advice on how to develop evidence-based local services.

The publication is timely: The Department of Health Green Paper “No voice unheard: no right ignored” states that early intervention should be routine, the forthcoming NICE guidelines on learning disability and challenging behaviour will set the benchmark for evidence-based support and the SEND reforms provide additional opportunities for a holistic approach to support and services to meet the needs of this group of children and young people.

Please click the image below, and share this resource to help spread the message that it is possible to commission and provide good local services for children with learning disabilities and behaviours that are described as challenging – and it is cost effective to do so!
