Services for Young Children

The Area Inclusion Co-ordinator Service

This service aims to develop and enhance the inclusive practice of all early years and childcare practitioners throughout Hampshire in their care of children aged 0-19 years.

Inclusion is the process of removing barriers to participation and learning so that everyone benefits fully from educational opportunities.

This is achieved through the empowering of all those working in early years settings to develop inclusive early learning environments, and to help them support children in removing barriers to learning wherever these exist.

Please use the links below to find out how the service works, and what support is available for families of children with special educational needs:

Every provider of services to children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities in Hampshire and border areas will be expected to publish a 'Local offer' based on the information that parents have said they would like to know. For more information please see Hampshire's local offer webpage.
