About the Programme

The first step to helping others with their learning, behavioural, emotional and physical difficulties is to see them and yourself in a new way, a way which allows for change. A way which offers hope, and provides specific and useful tools and skills.
more details

This workshop provides new insights into the experience of students with ADHD, Autism, Asperger's Syndrome, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, other learning difficulties and complex and profound learning and physical disabilities and how to respond more appropriately to them and their needs. You will discover new effective learning strategies and practical approaches for helping these students and gain a better understanding of how they think, feel and do and the interaction between them.

Sometimes referred to as 'the study of subjective experience' NLP, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, offers very exciting opportunities for students who have been diagnosed with learning difficulties. NLP is the study of how individuals put their experience (pictures, words, feelings, actions) together and how effective they are in achieving the results they want. It is based on the premise that we are "programmed" by our past experiences - sometimes in ways that support us and sometimes in ways that limit us. NLP enables you to recognise non-judgementally any limiting behavioural, communication, learning, or emotional patterns and gives you the tools to do something about them. It shows you how you can shift, or, if necessary, "reprogram" certain beliefs, internal states, behaviours or (learning) strategies so that you are freed-up to get the results you want in your life.

The workshop is led by Paul Jacobs, certified NLP Trainer, Master NLP Coach, learning consultant and life coach.

  • applying the NLP five Pillars and NLP Presuppositions to helping students with Special Educational Needs.
