Capturing the Views & Wishes of Disabled Children
The need to successfully capture the views and wishes of children is a concept that is both philosophically shared as well as embedded in legislation. Those working with disabled children need to draw on a skills base of creativity, flexibility and advocacy in order to ensure the voice of each child is captured, valued and used to influence and enhance the quality of disabled children's lives and experiences.
Would you like to know more about supporting children with attention difficulties including ADHD?
If so, please join our session run by the South Glos Educational Psychology Service. The session aims to give you a wider knowledge of ADHD and attention-related difficulties, how a deficit in executive functioning fits into the bracket of ADHD, and which children are more likely to have these types of difficulties and why.
We hope for you to come away with strategies to help a child cope with attention difficulties, to help you manage and support a child with these difficulties and to minimise the knock-on effects on family life. We also aim for you to have an understanding of the difficulties the child may be experiencing at school and help you understand the support system at school.’
This session is broken into 3 parts with activities throughout.
