Part 4 - Intervention in the early years

4.1  Medway's local authority (LA) recognises the importance of early identification of children's needs. It will seek to provide intervention for children with significant difficulties before they reach statutory school entry so that their needs are met early and the need for later expensive intervention is reduced.
4.2 Medway LA will work in close liaison with the Health Authority, social services and other statutory and voluntary agencies, including pre-school providers.
4.3 Medway LA will promote the physical, intellectual and social development of young children in the authority through its Early Years Development Plan.
4.4 The LA will continue to support young children with SEN by maintaining a pre-school service.
