Who is Bea Inclusive?
Hi everyone, I am Bea and I created and run Bea Inclusive website and I’m really passionate about creating truly inclusive provision to help children to become independent and happy adults.
To develop positive, proactive, child-centred and evidenced-based interventions and use of good practice standards at schools and other settings where professionals help and support children communication, language, social skills and emotional and behavioural responses through my Lego® based Therapy Training, Assessment Tools, Planning and Resources.
To educate professionals who work in the area of special needs that only through knowledge and understanding of the individual child, whole school/setting training in the area of special needs, through the consistent leadership and culture of respect, and self-reflection – we can help and support our children/young people/adults or elderly people.
To teach and inspire professionals on how to structure sessions and prioritise when delivering interventions. To improve children concentration, reduce child anxiety, enhance motivation, reduce challenging behaviours. To self-regulate through breathing and grounding techniques and to shape children/young people/adults emotional and behavioural responses.
History is who we are and why we are the way we are - David McCullough
We all have the ‘history’ – I appreciate every single experience and child I worked with as they created me – passionate and determined to help others. Started as the Learning Support Assistant, Teaching Assistant Level 3, Higher Level Teaching Assistant, Autism Lead Practitioner, an Expert in Lego® based Therapy to Passionate and Inspirational (according to my delegates feedback) Trainer, Creator and funder of the Brick by Brick Academy Online Training Hub and author of the Brick by Brick Program – planning and resources pack to your first 12 weeks of Lego® based Therapy.
One thing I’ve noticed very quickly when I was working in a school it was that there was a lack of practical training for the whole-setting which would be eclectic and holistic. There was a lack of quality resources to teach deficit skills through Lego® based Therapy and a lack of practical case studies so so facilitators can watch and learn: how the sessions should look like, how to deal with the behaviour, how to shape emotional and behavioural responses, recognise the facilitator techniques and improve their facilitator skills.
We all have the ‘history’ – I appreciate every single experience and child. There are reasons why I chose to train others how to help and support children with SEND through Lego® based Therapy. This is a very positive and extremely engaging approach that almost runs on its own. Where children cooperate with each other, working as a team, socialising, and together finding solutions to their problems, with the facilitator’s support and guidance. The place where they can feel safe, express their opinion, talk about the problems or learn how to self-regulate when feeling frustrated or upset.
This became my obsession, a huge interest to me to address deficit skills through Lego® based Therapy and link that with the Autism Good Practice and other interventions. I’m truly in love with this play therapy and extremely impressed with its flexibility and true joy that it gives to children and facilitators of those settings that implemented it in the right way.
