The 'Just Right State' programme ...


We are raising funds to run this project in a local school


The programme teaches children to use sensory activities and foods to self-regulate and become more emotionally aware of themselves and others. It gives them simple tools to recognise how they react to situations and enable self-regulation and how to achieve the 'Just Right State' for learning. Learn more abot the programme here.

Situation

Adenydd helps school staff to understand and support children who have experienced adverse childhood experiences. Children with developmental trauma often have great difficulty regulating themselves - both their emotions and their behaviour - and can present with huge challenges in terms of supporting them effectively. We are increasingly understanding the importance of the sensory system in regulation and how this can help children in classrooms to engage in their learning and relationships.


Solution

We will run a project in a school which will skill up members of staff in using a sensory attachment approach to help to regulate children. This will enable them to better support children in crisis and be able to teach the children how to co-regulate and self-regulate - essential life skills for resilience, and success in learning and relationships. The knowledge, understanding and skills gained will carry forward and support many more children that they teach over the coming years.
