For children with special needs, a firm and regulated environment is of utmost importance.
* If a child struggles to focus, they do a monkey walk down the passage to help them to refocus;
* “Manie Maniere” (the step) is used for discipline when necessary. The child is encouraged to sit and think about what he/she has done wrong and how to change their poor behaviour.(Time out)
* Saying sorry is not sufficient. The child should be encouraged to explain why they are saying sorry so that they understand why their behaviour was unacceptable.
