June 2011 - BASW England Consultation Response to Support and Aspiration: A new Approach to SEN and Disability

BASW/CoSW welcomes the emphasis on early identification of SEN and impairments proposed in this paper. This, alongside the development of partnerships working with parents and the provision of a named lead professional to co-ordinate the services necessary in the child’s life are essential requirements needed to help with identification and on-going support. In respect of a lead professional our members welcome the concept of a named professional with whom children, parents, carers and the wider family will feel confident that there will be ‘someone to turn to’ to coordinate support between home and other settings.
