Wall murals, canvas, posters and wall decals from your photo. Case study evidence. Talking Mats and Reviews An outreach worker at the Centre was working with a young boy who was experiencing significant difficulties at school including aggression and non-compliance.

Case study evidence

He was being excluded and had also spent considerable periods of time being looked after away from home by other family members. During meetings which the boy was not part of it became clear that his own views and voice was not being heard. With this in mind the outreach worker completed a Talking Mat with him. The worker then spent time with the boy talking with him about the different aspects of his life and using pictures, asked him to place them on the mat depending on how he felt about them (a tick for 'like', a question mark for 'not sure' and a cross for 'dislike'). This boy has since blossomed in his confidence and has really started to trust the worker. Case study: Empowering vulnerable children and their parents using Talking Mats.

Case study: Empowering vulnerable children and their parents using Talking Mats

Talking Mats is a low-tech communication tool originally developed by the Alternative and Augmentative Communication Research Unit to support people with communication impairment including those with stroke, learning disability and dementia. Stenhouse Child and Family Centre often work with very vulnerable children who have experienced significant adversity and trauma in their lives. This often means that children are hyper vigilant and find new people and experiences stressful and at times impossible. Child Protection systems can heighten these children's stress levels and as research into early brain development attests, stress can have a significant impact on children.
