I am a social worker. I am working with a 14 year old girl who I have been working with for the last two years. D has complex needs due to witnessing domestic violence as a young child, she has recently been diagnosed with ADHD and anxiety. D has been to two secondary schools and is now in an educational support centre as she struggles i a classroom setting.
D has difficulty with peer relationships and also relationships at home due to her difficulties.
D has a strong interest in horses- we have found a local mentoring service run by autism angels which is a form of coaching working with horses to improve relationships, confidence and build social skills. The cost of a years sessions are £3500- we will be using her pupil premium and an additional £250 from a local charity but still need £ 2500 for her to do the programme.
this programme would benefit d enormously as well as including family work to improve relationships within the household.
Thank you for your support
