Assessment includes follow up which demonstrates that benefits continue to accrue
Assessment is by the school SENCo or the class teacher who are well placed to observe the child’s coping skills
Assessment is NOT stressful for the child
Benefits to others who interact with the child When children are able to move forward in a more constructive way then benefits also accrue for the family, peers, teachers and the community.
Social return on investment The longer these issues are left unresolved, the more difficult and costly they may become. Neglect of these issues may sometimes be serious as the strains of emotional survival can result in a downward spiral of events in which their increasing despair and anger becomes a pathway to educational marginalisation, social disaffection and violence or self harm.
Lack of effective early intervention can incur substantial costs for the education, benefits, health, social work, police and justice services.There can be knock on effects for the next generation; sometimes quite soon.
Changed attitudes, and improved resilience & coping skills, are fundamental changes with far reaching implications for future lifestyles.
