Self-determination programmes for students
In this workshop we present strategies and hands-on-activities to enhance self-determination and self-advocacy to students with learning difficulties so that they can thrive in whole-class teaching.
Self-determination programmes have been used in the US since the 1990s and research has shown that they impact greatly on students' success. We have a specific programme for SEN students to help them set targets for themselves and reach these.
We will fous on ideas and strategies for problem-solving and effective communication, time management and how to promote a positive self-image.
If you are interested in offering a self-determination programme in your school, our consultants can help you to find out which course fits in best with your school ethos. We can also assist you in writing your own self-determination curriculum.
We can also offer a whole-day self-determination course for groups of students either during term time or as part of your KS2 - KS3 transition Summer School.
