Providing support for schools and other organisations
The key purpose of bibic is to ensure that children and young people with disabilities or difficulties reach their potential. We believe that working together with professionals, the family and the child provides the best chance of achieving that goal.
bibic has more than 45 years of experience as a service provider and has been working closely with like-minded organisations as part of their service delivery as well as delivering services on their behalf.
Throughout this time at bibic, we have become skilled in providing bespoke services for local authorities, schools and other organisations which include therapy packages for children and young people along with training and seminars for professionals and parents.
We pride ourselves on delivering excellent outcomes for children. Our service is child centred, and is continuously developed using feedback from the parents, children, professionals and the organisations we work with. We monitor our service using performance indicators and outcomes that demonstrate the impact our therapy is having, highlighting the progress each individual child is making.
Delivering bibic developmental therapy
We offer service level agreements and bespoke packages for a variety of organisations including within the school and pre-school environment.
At bibic we focus on the whole child – because we are not married to any one therapy and have a team that is diverse in its disciplines, we are able to cross traditional boundaries and examine holistically what is happening with each individual child. We are complementary to both the mainstream health and education systems and the information we provide can support with the development of an Education and Health Care plan if required. We assess the child’s development and examine everything from the medical, educational, social, communication and behavioural perspective.
Our services can help you to understand the children and young people you work with including:
- Facilitate better integration of care.
- Meet government directives/imperatives/stretch targets.
- Meet the requirements of your third sector compact.
- Improve your own services outcomes and efficiency by becoming better able to support your children.
- Improve your resources by using more efficient and successful methods with your children.
- Increase the development and skill of your staff team.
bibic offers ongoing support for as long as the child, family, school or professional request it. This is in the form of telephone, email, skype or conference calls, as well as future assessments and/or screening as and when needed.
Delivering training and seminars
At bibic we also offer training and seminars to up skill professionals who support children and young people with developmental difficulties ensuring they have all the tools available to achieve the best possible outcomes.
We deliver seminars and training for a range of organisations including schools, care homes, sports clubs, parents and carers forums and youth workers, adoption and care agencies and social services.
bibic training is delivered by our specialist developmental therapists. There’s no waffle and no theory without practical examples to back it up. bibic’s developmental therapy supports a hugely diverse range of developmental difficulties and conditions, and the same people who have the knowledge and experience to deliver those services are the people delivering our training.
All our training is adaptable to your situation. We don’t have standard material that we roll out again and again. We will work with you to discuss your needs to ensure that you get maximum benefit and the training you need.
Courses offered include:
Understanding and Managing Challenging Behaviour
Do you support a child with difficult behaviour? Do you need coping strategies, ways of calming them down and getting the day back on track?
This day long course will help you understand behaviour and the reasons behind it, giving you and the child a quicker, more rewarding solution.
The course is particularly good for those who work with groups of children. It relates to all ages and will give you easy to follow techniques that will make handling these situations substantially easier for you whilst enhancing, not damaging, the relationship with your clients.
Do you want to know more about Autism Spectrum Disorder?
This course explores the main characteristics of Autism Spectrum Disorder, the challenges faced by someone with ASD, and why they come about. It will teach you how to interact more successfully with a child or young person with ASD. With improved understanding, you will find that daily challenges become more manageable.
This course is great for parents who want to learn what ASD is about, and particularly good for staff in residential services such as supported housing and care homes.
Behaviour in the Classroom
Do you work with children with disruptive, unusual or unmanageable behaviour? Do you struggle to understand why they behave in this way?
This one day training course will explore the reasons children may have difficulty behaving in a classroom environment. You will learn practical and easy to implement strategies that address the root causes of behaviour, and encourage a happier classroom environment. We will help you find ways of helping your pupils to concentrate, take more in, progress better and fulfil more of their potential.
During the day, we may be able to comment to some degree on the reasons for your pupils’ difficulties, and what else you might do to investigate and remedy those.
An Introduction to Sensory Processing
Do you know a child who struggles to cope with the world around them? Maybe they’re particularly sensitive to tastes, sounds or smells? Maybe they put too much force into things or don’t notice when they’ve hurt themselves? This workshop will give an insight into what sensory processing difficulties are and the impact they can have on a child.
We will discuss how these difficulties can affect a child’s behaviour and ability to manage day to day. We will look at ways to identify when a child is struggling due to difficulties with their sensory processing, and discuss practical strategies to support them.
Early Indicators of Developmental Difficulties
The training course, which is designed to last for 4 hours, will help early years’ professionals identify young children and pre-school children who may be experiencing difficulties in a learning and play environment. These difficulties may include ASD, ADHD, global developmental delay and/ or sensory processing difficulties. The seminar will help the attendee identify specific areas of behaviour and challenges which can start a referral process to gain appropriate and timely support for the child who may be struggling.
