Clear guidance and practical suggestions for carers, schools and professionals.
Young people with special needs have particular requirements when faced with losses e.g., bereavement, divorce, house or school moves, or when hospital visits occur. Those supporting such young people are often unsure what to say, how to provide support, how to know if extra help is needed and how to prepare them for the challenge of severe losses such as bereavement.
Offers guidance on what to say and how to assess levels of support and communication needs, and includes a range of activities for different levels of needs. These can be used to enable young people to better understand their losses, express their needs and feelings and build resilience.
