In this week’s podcast, Dale Pickles from B Squared is joined by Fintan O’Regan to discuss going back to school in the new normal.
Fintan is a trainer and consultant for schools and school support systems including, Social Services, Health, the Police and Foster carers. He supports them by providing behaviour management strategies for children and families struggling with SEND and behavioural issues. He has worked with a number of organisations including NASEN, Institute of Education, Leicester University, the UK ADHD Network and the European ADHD Alliance. And before all of this, he was a headteacher of a specialist school for students with ADHD, ASD and ODD.
Mental Health is hugely important, there is now guidance from the DfE around Sex and Relationship Education that includes mental health and positive relationships. There is also a lot of talk about mental health in the media.
It is important to be aware of your own mood when supporting someone. How you approach the situation and how you interact with people can have a positive affect on the outcome of the situation.
