Children's Needs

Sometimes it is tricky to find adequate/appropriate provision for some Special Needs children, including Autism, Aspergers, ADHD, Pathological Demand Avoidance Syndrome, severe Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Speech and Language difficulties, Specific Learning difficulties. Please visit my new website, Enjoy My Day, for sharing challenges and good ideas. I especially welcome teachers who want to support these children.

Children do need academic attainment, but it is more important to develop social development and emotional stability. Please look up Daniel Seigel and his books for how Neuroscience explains what benefits out children.

Children manage life when we help them acquire awareness, honesty and responsibility to prepare them for adult life.
We need to support our children in ways that can lead towards a solid foundation in the basics of learning: reading, spelling, handwriting and maths. Many need intervention specific to their type of difficulty. Some need a unique approach with individual programmes and activities to reach age-appropriate levels in most areas, especially if they find school challenging.

There is support available for parents who prefer a holistic approach to learning or Home Education.
We create our lives by what we think, say and do and more parents want their child's academic focus to include awareness, honesty and responsibility.
