Circle of Friends

Circle of Friends is an approach to enhancing the inclusion, in a mainstream setting, of any young person who is experiencing difficulties in school because of disability, personal crisis or because of their challenging behaviour towards others. The 'circle of friends' approach works by mobilising the young person's peers to provide support and engage in problem solving with the person in difficulty. This is an excellent opportunity to learn from, Colin Newton and Derek Wilson, the educational psychologists who brought this DfES endorsed approach to the UK. Jaynie Mitchell of Inspiring Inclusion, a parent of a child who has a circle of friends, will also be sharing her experiences.
