Welcome to the Support Plan and Tracker
These assessments provide you will an initial overview of a child’s SEMH needs, a starting point to identify which of the areas should be support first. The Support Plan is also linked to an excel tracker, to provide an opportunity of identifying need, implementing an intervention, and then reviewing progress (effectiveness).
Assessment profile areas include: Attachment, Emotional, Sensory, Social, and Self-Esteem. Note: These are profiles, they are not diagnostic.
It is advised that after completion, if the child has been identified as having a high profile in a particular area, that further assessments are completed.
These could include:
- Emotional – Strengths and Difficulties
- Sensory – Sensory Difficulties Checklist
- Social – Social Skill Difficulties Checklist
- Self-Esteem – Rosenburg Self-esteem Scale
The Support Plan also helps you identify triggers and potential escalation to give adults working with the child valuable information on what de-escalates and regulates a child down from heightened stress.
At the end of the plan, you will have an opportunity to develop a Child’s Plan – What would help them? How can they help themselves? The resource links to the Restore, Repair, and Prevent Toolkit, to give a cycle of SEMH strategies.
