About Therapeutic Teaching

Specialist in teaching and coaching with person-centred and therapeutic approaches for children and young people who are struggling emotionally, socially and/or experiencing barriers to learning.

This might be related to:

  • trauma (including trauma caused by impact of unsupportive environments, particularly for neurodivergent children and young people e.g autistic burnout, bullying, discrimination).
  • social anxiety
  • school phobia
  • communication differences that impact on ability to be and feel understood by others and relate to others e.g. Neurodivergence, Selective Mutism, Relational/Developmental Trauma or developmental language needs.

We provide:

  • specialist assessments with young person, family and settings to gain insights into the unique profile of the young person;
  • specialist interventions that support the child or young person’s sensory profile to increase wellbeing and ability to re-engage with the world and to access learning;
  • facilitated ‘collaborative problem-solving’ meetings to plan for engagement in learning;
  • guidance ‘every step of the way’ in the implementation of a bespoke engagement or reintegration plan;
  • short-term coaching and mentoring personalised to the young person’s interests that supports social engagement and improvements in self-confidence and well-being.
