After spending the last 9 years as an early years practitioner and SENDCo i finally had a son of my own in 2014, followed this year by a little girl. they are affectionately referred to as Noo-noo and The Pig.
I have spent a lot of time working with families with small children advising and supporting them through their journey. Over the years i have discovered that, although all children are different, their are strategies and techniques that work for most children, most of the time.
I believe that remaining calm is the best attribute any parent or practitioner can have and that frame of mind, tone of voice and attitude make all the difference.
