To develop problem-solving skills and self-help skills
To develop positive thinking skills
Referrals can be made by parents or through a Speech and Language Therapist.
We have 12 places for Blockbuster and 12 places for the Teens Challenge courses. Early referral is essential. Once these places are full, further referrals will be placed on a reserve list
We encourage referrals through a Speech and Language Therapist because of the importance of follow up support after the course.
It is vital that you can commit to all the dates and all the parent sessions.
