Boys 2 men
Boys 2 Men is a 6 week program aimed at teenagers with Apserger’s Syndrome and Autistic Spectrum Conditions.
This program is designed to help develop a strong sense of self, an ability to recognise the potential within each of the participants. It aims to improve self-esteem and self image and encourage the young men to understand how to make positive life choices in a safe environment. We aim to encourage the attendees to recognise their own strengths and help them to understand the nature of their challenges whilst developing individual strategies for overcoming some of the barriers that these young adults face.
The sessions run weekly at our centre in Bideford, starting on Monday 13th February 2012 at 5.30pm. Each session lasts for 1.5 hours.
Prior to commencement and at the end of the course, all participants will undertake an assessment of their self-concept (Beck) and their self-esteem (Rosenberg.) The results may be used in research papers in an anonymous form.
Participants will be expected to attend all sessions. There is a cost of £50.00 per person for the course.
We offer a full professional consultancy service for schools, colleges, care agencies, hospitals, youth groups etc. This service involves us visiting your workplace to discuss your current situation, your challenges, your ambitions and environmental issues. This allows to gain a complete understanding of your organisation and to build a specific training plan around your individual needs. In addition to the training plan, we offer you and your staff the opportunity to create a series of strategies that will enhance the working environment and ease the pressures of helping people with autism. After the intitial consultation, we will revisit your workplace and deliver a tailored training program designed to meet your exact needs to you and your staff team (up to 15 people.)
The set price for this service is £500.00 plus VAT
