What people say about us

We found the course to be very informative course and hugely enjoyable, mainly because of the trainer who presented the materials brilliantly and with an appropriate blend of expertise and humour. We thought that it was great the way he spent the morning going through why children display certain behaviours and unpacking the neuroscience behind ADHD, ASD and Attachment disorders. The information was clearly presented and it was clear he has a very thorough knowledge of his subject matter. The analogies and anecdotes helped to break down the science and aid understanding. Although a lot to pack in, we got to get through all the practical holds but all understood that, with the knowledge acquired during the morning session, we should hopefully never get to the point where these actions will be required.

We all now feel that we have a more thorough understanding behind what leads to children displaying behaviours that may need lead to positive handling needing to be used and are very grateful for the training received by ABLE. It surpassed what we had expected and fully recommend to any establishment wanting to get exceptional training in this area. 

The course went so quickly as the trainer gave us food for thought about how we face challenging behaviour, how we support children going through a crisis, how we can manage behaviour proactively and, when absolutely necessary, how to use the least restrictive physical interventions.  The trainer clearly has a lot of knowledge and experience relating to the needs of children who have experienced trauma or who are going through crisis.

The course was really interesting as a training teacher. I have seen first hand on placement how challenging some children can be to themselves as well as other. This course gave us some great strategies for understanding and managing behaviours.

I think this training should be done by every new foster carer. I regret not receiving this training 10 years ago when I started. Really interesting, engaging and thought provoking.

Really interesting, I learned lots of new info with great psychological insights. Would love to do more training with this company.

Great interaction with everyone, gave great tips and advice about physical intervention within the foster care role. Adapted the training for my needs as a single carer too.

By far the most interesting and useful training I have ever done on the subject of challenging behaviour and de-escalation. I wish I had had this training three years ago.

Our trainer was brilliant at making us all feel at ease and trained us well. Thank you.

Excellent trainer – varied knowledge, answered questions in a relevant and interesting way. Pace was great and repeated when he saw we needed. Psychology insights very interesting. Very approachable. – Mental health support worker

We found the training very informative and helpful. The discussions around preventing challenging behaviour, and why incidents happen in the first place, really helped us develop our own understanding and strategies. Andy made the practical session interesting and fun, and we have used the techniques successfully. We are very glad to have had the training, which was reasonably priced, and would recommend it to other schools and organisations.

Excellent, hands on learning made fun and interactive. trainer answered every question and was very informative but also fun.
