DSPL2 coordinates support for all phases of young people's transitions:
- Early Years
- KS3 to KS4 (6/7 transition)
- Post 16 (through the Pre Apprenticeship Programme)
When a child or young person with a special educational need or disability (SEND) is approaching a change, they may experience a range of emotions including excitement, anticipation, and anxiety. This can affect both the child or young person and their parents/carers.
Preparing for and getting used to a change is commonly called 'transition'.
It is important to help prepare and support children and young people through this, so the transition is a positive experience.
Good transition planning is important for all children and young people. But children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) will require more planning and preparation.
