Observing Children with Attachment Difficulties in School (5-11 Years)

Identifying and supporting emotional and social difficulties in children 5-11 years

Product Description

Published UK, 2013
This easy-to-use tool provides an observation checklist which enables staff to identify behavioural patterns in children with social and emotional difficulties, analyse the emotional difficulties underlying these behaviours and establish what kind of help and support the children need. Behavioural responses are categorized within clearly outlined topics including behaviour, play and relationship with peers, attachment behaviours, emotional state in the classroom and attitude to attendance. Checklists and diagrams identify different styles of relating (secure, avoidant, ambivalent) to help school staff who work with children and their families to respond appropriately to the individual needs of each child. A range of handouts include activities designed to provide emotional support, to focus and regulate behaviour and enable the child to develop important social and emotional skills.

Ages 5-11 years
