Building friendships in a neurotypical world

24/06/2020 - 11:00 to 13:00


Delivered via Zoom Webinar

Learn how to build teams around challenging pupils by drawing on a resource which is always there…. other children. Enjoy participating in a multi media workshop that will challenge, entertain and reach for your emotions. Circles of support are for us all, for life…. and they work!

This is an excellent opportunity to learn from Colin Newton and Derek Wilson the educational psychologists who brought this Department of Education endorsed approach (‘Circle of Friends’) to the UK.

The course answers the questions:

•What do you do with the child who is isolated by their aggression and anger, through being different, disabled or new to the school or community?

•Practically how do we go about including high profile children or young people?

•How can we help some children be friends?

We will cover:

•The importance of Welcome

•Inclusion values underpinning this work

•The Intentional Building of Relationships – ‘Circle of Friends’ work as an example

•Not doing it alone – The Importance of Teams in developing inclusive practice

•Practical setting up of circles of friends

•Lessons learned

•Stories of circles in primary and secondary mainstream schools
