‘Butterflies and Bees’ This course follows on from 'Why and How?' Attachment and Emotional Health for Young People Looked After. A training course designed to support foster carers, adopters and special guardians in developing their ability and confidence to respond therapeutically to the children in their care. This in-depth course is a key intervention from the Thinking Aloud team, designed to help you as carers develop your ability to support the children in your care. We will cover topics such as attachment and trauma, as well as consider different behaviours that might be difficult to manage within the home. We will spend some time thinking about your responses to difficulties in your relationships with the young people in your care, and discover and practice a range of practical techniques to improve their and your wellbeing. Please note that priority may need to be given to certain carers identified by the Family Placement and/or Thinking Aloud Team.Essential Information

This course is aimed at SENCOs and practitioners working with children with social communication difficulties or with a diagnosis of ASC or children with language delay and short attention spans, who want to explore new ideas to develop small group attention, interaction and participation.
The course will include a brief insight into working with and supporting children with social communication difficulties or ASC. It will explore how a different approach can support children to develop attention skills to support development of children’s spontaneous use of language and follow rules and boundaries in a group activity. This approach is also appropriate for children who are experiencing general delayed language development.
It will provide an introduction into using bucket activities in your setting, and the four stages to develop children’s attention.
There will be lots of practical demonstrations of activities you can experience to inform your practice, and ideas to take back and use.
