About the event
There is no obligation for your young person to take part. They can just listen with cameras off or participate however is comfortable.
In this first session we will be learning about strengths you may not even know you had.
We’ll be reflecting on our own unique strengths and what they bring to the world.
We will also talk more about what the next sessions will look like, and work together to figure out what you would like to get out of the next two sessions.
Sessions are small groups of 6-8 with two facilitators and are Neurodiverse-centred.
As this is our first session we will be working on getting comfortable and settled in. There is no expectations on young people. If they do feel comfortable to take part we will support them to do so through a range of means including messaging, and interactive experiences.
The sessions will be led by Sascha and one other facilitator depending on your session time.
Sascha is an experienced facilitator and coach with young people and has won awards for innovative work in schools. She has a background in creative arts, and has worked to introduce young people to the benefits of creativity.
Mekkin is our Lead Peer Support Guide. As an autistic and ADHD person, she had her own struggles with secondary school and university. Now she uses her strengths and experiences to help support and guide neurodivergent young people, as well as create educational content on behalf of Uncommon.
Becky is a coach, SENCO and safeguarding specialist. She has worked in leadership roles within a large secondary school including that of a Special Educational Needs coordinator, which has given her valuable expertise on training education practitioners to create learning environments for young people which are inclusive for all.
We will send out full details about each session as well as the confirmed facilitators 2 days before each event along with a welcome video that young people can view.
