Primary Schools in Basildon, Primary Schools in Wickford and Primary Schools in Billericay. We will support the School SENCO’s, the School SEN, Learning Mentors and other departments of the school.
We will support the School with children that suffer from Social Emotional Behavioural Difficulties (SEBD) This include those that have ADHD, Autism, ASD or other learning disability. We will also take referrals for children who are at risk of being excluded or other behavioural challenges . At ECD, children and young people are catered for individually, with the understanding that each and every one of them is different and unique and have different levels of understanding and learning techniques.
We are aware that raising and caring for troubled children and young people can be demanding and challenging. This may often lead to stress, depression, anxiety and isolation. ECD supports parents and carers by offering the following:
As a parent do you ever find yourself worrying and asking yourself several questions centred around your children. Here are some of the most asked questions, these were ascertained during a parent survey carried out in July 2014
If you have been asking yourself some of these questions or know somebody that has, do not hesitate getting in contact with us.
Mental Health and well-being is key to each individual, whether you are a child or a teacher. For a daily functioning sound mind, this definitely needs to be in place. ECD offer packaged workshops for both students and teachers, with the hope of better engagement skills and a fresh relaxed mind.
Schools contribute strongly to risk and resilience factors for mental health, and programmes to promote mental health are among the most effective of school health promotion programmes. A large evidence base has been developed stretching back over many years.
These programmes can mitigate some of the effects of suboptimal parenting. They also support other school health programmes like those aiming to reduce alcohol and drug misuse, which alone can be relatively ineffective. These programmes may also offer parenting support. Universal approaches are important to underpin targeted approaches and are effective in their own right.
There is pervasive evidence linking academic achievement to mental health and well-being, and this can be used as a powerful argument to promote uptake in a service which may not have health as a priority. We will help in strengthening pupil resilience and share the tools to identify pupils who may likely need extra support. Tools and other relevant information can be downloaded from our website.
