Working with EBD students, you know how important it is to help them manage their behaviour and motivate them to learn.
Developing emotional literacy is crucial in reversing any downward spiral that is so often the experience of these young people; instead, they are able to make the most of their skills and opportunities.
Schools using DISCOVERING ME report that VisionWorks provides both staff and students with the tools to transform their behaviour, their experience of education, and therefore their lives. Springfields School in Wiltshire has been using the programme in a unit working with students who are at risk of exclusion from local schools:
This is an excellent provision and is the sort of valuable outreach which separates an outstanding school from a good one. It makes a very strong contribution to the school’s specialism in Inclusion and has a positive impact on reducing exclusion and improving behaviour and engagement in local schools.

In a systematic and profound programme of over 90 activities, students learn self-awareness, empathy, communication, behaviour management, so they can make better choices. They are equipped to choose a future that can be different from their past.
