IDP – EYFS: Teaching and supporting pupils with BESD
The Inclusion Development Programme (IDP) Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS): Teaching and supporting pupils with Behavioural, Emotional and Social Difficulties (BESD) e-learning course is provided for practitioners in Early Years settings who will have varying experience of supporting children with BESD.
The programme will help you:
- understand what is meant by BESD and the range of difficulties which affect children and their families
- communicate, using a common language, with different stakeholders and people involved with children about children's nurture, learning and development
- raise awareness of the required knowledge, and 'applicable' skills to create an inclusive learning environment in your setting to support children with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties
- appreciate that the adult's behaviour influences the child's behaviour, positively or negatively
- establish and build effective relationships with the children, mothers and fathers, and others involved which support children's nurture, learning and development
- build self-confidence by providing relevant guidance, resources and job aids that enable communication with mothers and fathers, and other agencies in the Early Years sector.
