hi, this post is probably just stupid and I’m over thinking too much, but I was wondering if I could get some advice about SENCO’S and what people know about them. I’ve googled it and want some actual people with experience to explain, as I don’t seem to be understanding what it’s about.
here’s what’s happened – my daughter (5yo) is in reception, and since a month after starting in September last year, she’s been given a my school week folder which states that she needs improving on her listening skills, following an adults instructions and sensory diet (I don’t know what that is, Google didn’t help). she’s also been given a chewbuddy. I’ve been told by her teacher that a SENCO has instructed the teachers to give it to her. I have never met, talked (known of my daughters interaction) with the SENCO. how am I supposed to react to that? my mind is saying are they trying to label my daughter as special needs??? if so would’ve liked to been told. just want some honest advice (without any criticism) please, as I will think the worst.
thanks in advance
