BATOD publications: ‘Articulating the specialism’ series

In June 2022, the BATOD National Executive Council (NEC) published a document Articulating the specialism (The role of QToD in mainstream settings) to support dialogues with professionals eg Headteachers, school Governors, coordinators in role for those supporting CYP with additional needs ie SENDCo (England), ASN Co-ordinator (Scotland), ALNCo (Additional Learning Needs) (Wales), Learning Support Co-ordinator (NI). The June 2024 this document was revised and is available to access here.

In June 2024 NEC added to the Articulating the specialism series with this document Articulating the specialism – Early years. We hope this resource will be useful for you in the dialogues with parents/carers and professionals such as

  • Health services such as newborn hearing screening services, paediatric audiology services, health visitors and school nurses.
