SPECIFIC SPECIAL SCHOOL OPPORTUNITIES
THFC: TRANSITIONAL HELP FOR COMMUNITIES
The programme works with young people who have a learning and/or physical disability to improve communication and life skills which will provide them with confidence to tackle transition periods throughout their life.
We do this through providing educational sessions based on communication, team work, leadership, health and safety, personal hygiene, presentation skills, and healthy nutrition. The group also engage with 30 minutes of physical activity and multi-sports each week to boost their activity levels.
HARINGEY TRANSITION PROJECT
Through this programme we support young people with autism and complex health needs who are in care and returning to the North London area. Participants will engage in a range of activities to tackle worries around transition they are facing which can later be applied throughout their adult lives.
They will be encouraged to participate in simple sports and life skills activities and undertake various visits to local organisations, including education and day care providers, local leisure facilities and, where appropriate, to spend time with their family and friends. This boosts self-esteem and confidence and to help them to deal with difficult situations they may face.
In addition to the above, we are able to offer support and develop individual programmes which meet the specific needs of your students, staff and school.
The course was excellent and well presented by Tottenham Hotspur Foundation. Although difficult, every effort was made to include all young people. As a result, their confidence increased week by week. Well done! I personally really enjoyed the whole course.
