Taking part in a special needs programme

We can adapt the practical session according to the needs of your students. We work with the class teacher and by using a  bespoke “build your own I.M.P.S. visit” resource we can deliver elements of the programme most suitable to your cohorts needs.  Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

As always the ladies were fantastic at the I.M.P.S training and the group worked really well and enjoyed it. I really appreciate the hard work that you all put in to make I.M.P.S possible I think it is such a great course and that all students should take part. I am really grateful that you are able to adapt it for my year 10 students as it teaches such vital life skills to them.

I.M.P.S Story

Rhodri's story

Rhodri makes the call

When Rhodri Jones was a pupil at Woodeaton  Manor Special School he called 999 after he found a man collapsed at a bus stop.
Rhodri, who often finds speaking difficult, remembered being taught what to do in an emergency and called for an ambulance.
He went through the I.M.P.S.  programme when he was a pupil at St Michaels Primary School in Marston before starting at the special school Woodeaton Manor.
Rhodri has autism spectrum disorder and finds social interaction difficult.
His mum, Jill said, ‘under normal circumstances he would find it very hard to talk to anybody and he would find it quite stressful.  This is a little chap who has real difficulties, but he remembered what to say and it was  a really brave thing for him to do.  I’m really proud of him.’
