RKCS offers impartial advice, guidance and practical support for parents and professionals alike for children with Special Educational Needs (SEN), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or other challenging, seemingly unmanageable behaviours. With more than thirty years of experience RKCS can help you to understand what lies behind the turbulent, problematic and often defiant behaviours in order to help the child to realise its potential to “Be Healthy, Stay Safe, Enjoy and Achieve, Make a Positive Contribution and Achieve Economic Well-being”.
Whatever your background, educational or professional standing, you will be in safe hands with RKCS and will NOT be judged! I will start from where you are currently and offer bespoke, personal 1:1 support that results in a proposed action plan that is implemented at a pace and which is determined and agreed by you. I can also attend or advocate on your behalf when having to deal with other agencies and professionals, acting as the “glue” that holds things together.
Our work together will give you the opportunity to develop and practise new strategies for dealing with the behaviour of your child as well as help you to respond in a way that sets a good example for other professionals to adopt or follow. As a result your self-belief, confidence and resilience as a parent will increase and your ability to develop a positive relationship with your child will be greatly strengthened.
It may, however, be more appropriate for you to attend one of my group programmes. A group setting would give you the chance to share experiences and receive additional support from other parents or carers in similar situations.
RKCS can support professionals across a range of agencies such as CAMHS, Children’s Social Care, Early Intervention Services, the Police (Criminal Justice System) and Education (Schools and Colleges) to achieve positive change as well as meet service-led objectives and outcomes for all parties. I am a qualified teacher with 30+ years of classroom experience, during which time I have had first-hand knowledge and hands-on experience of intervention work with children and their families, parents or carers.
I can provide professionals and agencies with a range of resources and ideas to promote their engagement with families, parents or carers as well as further and develop their own Continuous Professional Development (CPD). I am skilled at increasing the likelihood of compliance of children and their families, parents or carers with a proposed intervention. When professionals or agencies are no longer involved or have closed the case, I can continue to help families, parents or carers to ensure that they are less likely to need recourse to these services or agencies in the future.
