My child has special needs, how can I support them at home?
Children with SEN have hugely varying needs. Often activities and experiences need to be individually adapted. There are, however, a range of strategies that can be helpful for many children. We have collated a range of ideas that might be useful at home.
Often, one of the difficulties faced by children is anxiety. This can be caused, or worsened by not being able to understand what is happening. Structure, routine and careful communication are vital. Challenging behaviour is a form of communication and unpicking the underlying worry is the key to reducing it.
