Where a child or young person is identified as having SEN, educational providers should take action to remove those barriers to learning and put effective special educational provision in place. This SEN support should take the form of the assess-plan-do-review cycle through which earlier decisions and actions are revisited, refine and revised with a growing understanding of the pupil's needs and of what supports the pupil in making good progress and securing good outcomes. This is known as the graduated approach. It draws on the more detailed approaches, requires frequent reviewing and more specialist expertise in successive cycles in order to match the interventions to the SEN of the children and young people.
Nasen Online have developed a short video on Early Years and The Graduated Approach.
