What does the programme involve?
The programme involves the individual and a parent or support person working one-on-one with Melanie Curry. The initial steps of the programme are designed to bring about individuation, a harmonization of perceptions, and a beginning sense of personal identity. After individuation has occurred, each session is designed around a series of ‘life concepts’; each concept is explained and modeled in plastalina clay. The concept is then explored in a ‘real world’ environment; this can include the immediate environment or specifically designed excursions. The individual will also be guided through a series of non- invasive, gentle exercises, in order to provide the ability to maintain focus and reduce anxiety.
