The influence of development and childhood experiences on the challenging behaviour of children and young people!
For confidential purposes, the real name of the young person in my case study will not be used.
James is a 15 year old boy who lives at home with his mother and father, he has two older siblings who have moved out of the family home, and come to visit as often as they can.
James was referred to my agency by his school, Are agency is an alternative education project which works with 13-19 year old who are not in any form of education, James has been arriving at school late if he attends at all, And when he dose he is very disruptive to other pupils, and has been verbally abusive to staff, This is not the first time that this has happened. The school has had many meetings with his mother, to try and work out different solutions, James has been allocated a mentor which didn’t last very long, and James mother completed a parenting course, which she said did help a little. James school have tried everything even exclusion, which James mother has said he just loves anyway. They really don’t want to expel James, as they feel he has a lot of potential and could go very far, James is a great footballer, and plays for a well known team, and without education will struggle very much. James found our agency himself and asked the school if they could fund his to attend, as he felt he would work better there, because he dose not like the school and doesn’t get along with the teachers. The school has agreed and this is James last hope.
James is now attending Intouch
