Welcome to Redkite Coaching Solutions (RKCS)

Founded by Lyn Oualah, 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”.

Parent/Carer Special Educational Needs Services

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.

professional Special Educational Needs Services

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.

Difficult subject areas are no problem for Lyn!

Social services provided our 23 year old son (ADHD, ASD, learning disabilities, dyspraxia..) with Lyn’s services a couple of years ago,  and again more recently for 6 months of 1 to 1 coaching. She has helped us both no end with her help, support and advice. Working in particular on the more difficult subjects such as hygiene, social media safety, sexual health , money and drug use is never easy, but she has found ways to get to grips with these difficult conversations admirably!

We highly recommend her!

Just 6 sessions later…

I was put forward by my sons social worker for this course and I was a bit sceptical about it as I have done so many courses and just thought “oh here goes another” but to my surprise Lyn’s approach is very different from anything else out there. I can honestly say her way of thinking/doing really does have a positive effect. Things had been very difficult/tense within my household my son has autism and ADHD and the last few years had been a downward spiral. Having done this course I feel more positive and things with my son have improved we have better communication and a positive safety plan put into place now if and when he has a bad day. I would recommend Lyn to any parents/Carers struggling. I have also requested a follow up session with Lyn to check in on how things are going.

ADHD Workshop

I couldn’t say thank you enough to this lady!  I met Lyn at an adhd workshop that she runs for parents with children pre and post diagnosis.  I got so much information I felt overwhelmed!  I didn’t have any help for my son at school until I met Lyn who talked me through what my son was entitled to and who to ask to get it! He has now seen an Ed psych and has so much put in place to support him.  I didn’t even know what one of those was until I met Lyn!  If I didn’t meet her I would probably just be on a waiting list waiting for a diagnosis and getting no help for him and he would still be suffering at school.  I’m still going through this journey but I have gained knowledge that I never had and feel ready for what challenges are ahead of us.

Supporting Young ADHD Adult

Lyn has been in an essential role motivating and supporting my ADHD young adult. Also with her help with application process, he is starting his studies for his dream job.

Lyn understands perfectly how to communicate with and coach young people. I cannot recommend her enough!

‘Who’s in Charge?’ (Parenting Programme)

The ‘Who’s in Charge?’ workshop was insightful, full of ideas and suggestions with how to manage all sorts of behaviours. As a small group we bonded and supported each other, with great understanding and knowledgeable teachers with lived experiences. The workshop opened our minds to new ways of thinking, ideas and the feeling we aren’t on our own. As a parent with a 10 year old boy with Aspergers, ADHD, SPD, anxiety and epilepsy this is a great workshop. I really recommend this to parents that have children who have challenging behaviours.
