Inclusion Development Programme (IDP)

The Inclusion Development Programme (IDP) is an online continuing professional development (CPD) tool designed to:

  • Improve outcomes for all children by helping settings and schools develop more inclusive practices
  • Promote the early recognition of signs of difficulties
  • Increase the confidence and knowledge of all practitioners and teachers so that they can make adjustments that will narrow the gap between children with different types of SEN and their peers
  • Support settings and schools to become more effective at strategic approaches and responses to the diverse needs of individual children.

N.B. The School-age IDPs for SLCN and Dyslexia were revised in February/March 2011 with significant changes to the materials and navigation.

The new resource focuses exclusively on SLCN or Dyslexia in 2 separate CDs. Copies of the CDs were distributed to all schools in Worcestershire in Spring 2011.

As of March 2011, the following IDP materials are available in separate programmes and can be accessed online at the National Strategies (External Website).
