Assessment and intervention

We use a problem solving approach to help unpick complex and challenging situations.  Our focus is on providing practical recommendations which are informed by evidence based practice.

We can support students experiencing a range of needs, such as learning, challenging behaviour, emotional wellbeing and sensory and physical.

Support to groups of students

We recognise the value in supporting staff to meet the needs of identified groups of students or particular cohorts.  This can be achieved through teacher coaching or facilitating group problem solving with staff. We are also able to deliver evidence based interventions to groups of students such as FRIENDS.

Training and whole school work

We are committed to working with schools at an organisational level to support systemic changes. We provide high quality training on a range of issues, such as anxiety and managing challenging behaviour.  We recognise that each school is different so we create bespoke training packages.
