Visit to Schools in Ireland to help with Positive Handling Issues

Our team just returned from a training visit to a number of schools in Ireland who asked for our help with specific issues they are facing with special-needs pupils in mainstream settings.   Although historically there has been little guidance from the Dept for Education and Skills on these issues, schools really do need good advice and guidance on what to do when pupils are becoming difficult to manage, distressed because their needs are not being met or even behaving dangerously to themselves or others around them

The lack of guidance is well known:

Feedback has been very positive from staff and management about the sessions which our team ran for them:

“It would be important for any school where physical restraint is necessary to do this course. Staff need to be familiar with the information and techniques outlined in this course.”

– Principal, Primary School, Co. Meath, Ireland

More feedback from our recent training courses is available on our blog here.
