HELPING YOUNG MINDS FLOURISH
We offer specialist short-term support for children who have experienced trauma. Our skilled practitioners are qualified in Eye Movement Therapies (EMDR) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapies (CBT). We can work in tandem with existing counselling programmes to benefit hard-to-reach children.
Everybody knows that children can struggle with school because of what goes on at home. A little skilful support at the right time can dramatically increase the quality of life for mum, dad, child and teacher. We can focus on navigation of housing/benefits systems, behavioural support in the home, or issues outside school that impact on behaviour in school.
Speech and language therapy
Language skills underpin positive attainment. Our Speech and Language Therapists focus particularly on the link between pragmatic vocabulary and behaviour, delivering measurable outcomes. This can support both children with English as an Additional Language (EAL) and children who need support with social skills to improve their outcomes in school.
Working with our most vulnerable can be a challenge, even for the most knowledgeable of school staff. Our team has experience of implementing and improving quality, bespoke provision for children with a whole host of specialist needs; we work hand in hand with you. From establishing SEMH and nurture provisions to practical day-to-day advice, we are with you every step of the way.
Our team have specialist skills in nurture work with individuals and groups. The network of attachments that give children a secure base can be restored through careful and sensitive work, helping to address connection-seeking and challenging behaviours, particularly in the early years.
Support for looked-after and adopted children
We have extensive experience and insight into the needs and challenges facing looked-after, fostered and adopted children and their carers, families and teachers. We offer a range of strategies for setting boundaries for behaviour and managing emotional needs, promoting successful placements and positive outcomes in school.
Support for children with autism
Children with autism can struggle with many aspects of the school day. We offer insight and practical solutions to help include children on the autism spectrum in all aspects of the school day and to support parents and teachers to manage challenging situations.
