Children with Special Needs
Erikas, Šiauliai Speech therapy nursery, Lithuania
Children with learning difficulties are at much greater risk of developing mental health problems than other children. Yet there is a serious lack of resources to promote their mental health and emotional well-being.
We are tackling this issue by working on two adaptations of Zippy’s Friends – one for children studying in mainstream schools and one for those in special schools. Early trials have been very encouraging. The version for special schools has been used successfully with older pupils.
