The Early Years Area SENCO Team (EYAST) offers support and advice for children with special educational needs and disabilities in Early Years settings. We work with parents, carers, staff, and other professionals in education, health and social care. We aim to support settings so that all children can access the Foundation Stage curriculum to their full potential and make progress from their starting point.
