Empower students to communicate how they feel
Statistics show New Zealand Children are experiencing greater pressures earlier in life, with many suffering increased levels of stress and anxiety. We know early intervention reduces the risk and severity of mental health issues later in life, and drastically improves a child's developmental, emotional, academic, and social outcomes.
All too often, assumptions based on a child’s outward behaviour determine our assessment of their well-being. However, as part of a coping mechanism, children often hide their feelings and will internalise trauma. Ultimately, that suffering child becomes much harder to recognise via common behavioural cues. Also, whilst not adequately processing, or repressing emotions entirely, as they mature they may jeopardise the formation of normal cognitive developmental processes.
