Service Description

A 5 day course to help everyone starting a new school in Year 7. From looking at how we can use our strengths in new classes and friendships, to managing anxiety and sensory needs, managing timetables and homework, and asking for help when we need it. 👍🏼 Session 1: Building confidence ​Our introductory session encourages young people to explore the positive aspects of their neurodivergence and identify their can use their strengths in new subjects, school activities and friendships. 👬 Session 2: Making new friends ​Our second session encourages young people to think about what is important to them in friendships, and the different ways we can show new friends we care. We also discuss how friendships form, and tips on how to find people you really get on with at school! ​😔 Session 3: Managing Stress ​Using a light-touch approach, young people learn more about the science behind stress, develop a greater awareness of how stress shows up for them, and start to brainstorm what they can do if they feel stressed in school. ​⏰ Session 4: Planning and organising ​This session makes it simple to understand the differences that can happen in neurodivergent young people’s ability to plan, organise, start tasks, transition tasks, emotionally regulate and track time. Before talking through simple tips on how to get ready in the morning, manage school and homework. ​📢 Session 5: Asking for help ​Our final session encourages young people to take everything they’ve learned about their own needs and preferences, and gives them the communication tools to ask for help in their new setting.
