Wellbeing support for lockdown

www.elsa-support.co.uk is one of my favourite places to look for resources.  Dring the lockdown there has been lots of information and support added to this website.  The May wellbeing challenge has been put up recently and there is a link below if you would like to give this a go.  Whilst you are there take a look at the corona virus section where you will find lots of other ideas for supporting emotional literacy during this time. 

Returning to school social story

 

The Haven team have been working on ways to support our children in the transition back to school as this may be challenging for some.

 

One of the ways in which we can help children understand what is going to happen is by use of social stories.  These stories are essentially a set of expectations or instructions to instil the idea and understanding of what will happen.  This can help reduce anxiety by taking the unknown out of a situation. 

 

As such we have produced a social story based on one written by Reachout ASC, which aims to prepare children that they will be returning to school at some time in the future.  The story is purposefully vague, as it needs to cover all eventualities for a wide audience.

 

 A social story is effective when read regularly in the lead up to an event, so can be used to help children understand that they will be returning to school and lessen any anxiety they may have.
