Themed Breakout: Understanding the Emergent Learning around the 27-30 month child health check John O’Dowd firstname.lastname@example.org Early Years Collaborative Learning Session Two Day 2
Stretch Aim 2 To ensure that 85% of all children within each Community Planning Partnership have reached all of the expected developmental milestones at the time of the child’s 27-30 month child health review, by end-2016.
Stretch Aim 3 To ensure that 90% of all children within each Community Planning Partnership have reached all of the expected developmental milestones at the time the child starts primary school, by end-2017.
Ready to Learn pilot Started in August 2011 Covers NE and NW Glasgow, East Dunbartonshire and Renfrewshire Approximately 600 children per month Builds on previous work done in West Glasgow around a 12 and a 30 month universal contact
Evaluation & Research NHSGGC: –John O’Dowd –Michelle Affleck –Lucy Thompson Glasgow University: –Phil Wilson –Fiona Sim Newcastle University: –James Law
Ready to Learn pilot Focus on developmental readiness of universal nursery provision Create progressive universalism Built on local needs assessment around the prevalence of communication needs and known links between behavioural problems and risk of future conduct problems/disorder Pathways to early intervention Second element still underway: –validation of tools
Ready to Learn - tools Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) –5 domains: emotional symptoms, conduct, hyperactivity, peer relationships, and prosocial domains Sure Start Language Measure (SSLM-R) –50 common words –Below 20 suggests significant delay –Below 50 provides stimulus to promote language (but no normative need)
80% uptake across all quintiles in first month Dropped off with time and competing demands Rally with feedback through managers Positive reaction from staff and parents Learning from exceptions

Emergent learning Reach: –capacity –engagement : positive framing using developmental readiness Learning from errors: epistemology of practice Working together – interdisciplinary before interagency! Capacity –cumulative intervention –concerns about reduced time for targeted work Capability and developmental assessment Capability, capacity and new interventions Individualised solutions versus organisational pathways
