This research analyses the processes of observation and educational planning of children aged 0-6 years by educators and teachers both in Italy and abroad. The increase in the number of fragility and diagnostic situations has highlighted the need for tools that facilitate the understanding and description of the peculiarities of the developmental processes of individual children, and the passage of 'useful' information for the construction and implementation of the shared educational project and the 'school-family-territory' alliance. A planning and observation tool in the services for the 0-6 age group "POSI" was therefore developed, aimed at service educators and pre-school teachers, to support observation and planning skills, improving educational and pedagogical practices. It is divided into two parts the first one of observation through 200 items (with examples) to guide the educator in systematic and ecological observation. The second part is educational planning, aimed at the child/class/interclass system. The tool was developed on an ICF basis and detects developmental abnormalities at an early stage. Initial trials are encouraging out of 120 children there have been 10 reports of atypical development. Only 4 were actually taken up by child neuropsychiatry. The other 6 were corrected through the design of experience fields that put the child in the best developmental condition. The intervention demonstrates that POSI helps teachers/educators to improve long life learning processes by developing the recognition of early or latent signs and guiding them through conscious and differentiated planning by helping children in their development and reducing referrals to child neuropsychiatry.
