19-05-2021 Helping your child manage and communicate their emotions at home

Our Voice hosted two videoconferences in conjunction with a panel of Speech and Language therapists, looking at how parents and carers can use the concept of 'Zones' to help their child/young person to manage and communicate their emotions effectively. 

You can see the presentation from the two sessions here

The 'safety toolkit' referred to in the presentation can be accessed here

You may wish to access some symbols to use when creating your own toolkit to use at home. This website has a good range which you may find useful - you can access a free 21-day trial (thereafter you will be charged a monthly fee so don't forget to cancel if you don't want to incur this). Alternatively, you may wish to talk to your child's school or speech therapist for suggestions.
