Spencer can be used as a first stage intervention for teachers, teaching assistants, special needs support workers, and other professionals engaged in supporting children and young people in primary and secondary school. Once complete Spencer analyses the responses and graphics provide an easy to understand report of needs. This is achieved using a bespoke information technology programme. The system is designed around an integrated model of child and adolescent development and does not rely on the need for ‘diagnosis’. Spencer provides interventions that are designed to help and support the child or young person in very pragmatic and accessible recommendations. Spencer can be used to guide Individual Education Plans and to gather evidence to support referral of a child or young person to more specialist help, and involves a monitoring and progress capability.
