Specialist Education



The therapy and behaviour support teams worked together to develop debrief support for the young people.


Aim of the project: For the young people at Hill House School to learn about and understand their emotions in a way that is accessible to them, in order for them to develop some self-regulation skills for the future. The young people are learning how to identify which zone they are in, adding strategies to their ‘Zones of Regulation Toolbox’.


There are four types of debriefs that the young people can access:


Calming choices – Offering support directly after the incident to regulate back to the green zone


Reflective tToolbox – A learning opportunity to reflect on the incident


Social Thinking Reflection – Supports the young person to develop social skills to help them to problem solve


Check in – Checking on the emotional wellbeing after young people have been exploring each other’s social boundaries
