Developing Personal and Social Skills for Young People and Adults with SEND

Transitioning from childhood to adulthood is a difficult time, particularly for those with an intellectual disability, autism spectrum disorder, mental health issues or those with emotional and behavioural difficulties. This webinar will explore ways to equip young people with the personal and social skills needed to make this transition.

Developing Personal and Social Skills for Young People and Adults with SEND

Many children and young people with intellectual disabilities, autism, mental health issues or offending behaviour have difficulty in making a successful transition from childhood to adulthood as a result of lack of opportunities, poor role models or the complex nature of their disability. As a result, they may lack understanding of social conventions and laws, appropriate social interactions and relationships, and how to manage feelings or difficult situations. As a result, they may suffer from low self-esteem and find it difficult to live and work successfully in the community.

The course manual aims to equip young people and adults with intellectual disabilities, autism or mental health difficulties with the personal and social skills to transition from childhood to adulthood and live successfully in the community. These skills include relating appropriately to different people, being as responsible and independent as possible, making decisions in an assertive manner, asking for help, coping with feelings and difficult situations, and building self-esteem.
