We recognise that, for a variety of reasons, some children have difficulties and have been identified as vulnerable, in difficulty, with emotional needs or with challenging behaviour.
For Young People
At Modern Human, we have over 25 years’ experience of working with children with these needs within healthcare, educational and charitable settings to help minimise problems and increase engagement; helping children to develop and thrive.
Young people of all age groups have an important job. Every day they need to explore the boundaries of their abilities by learning, socialising and playing. However, we recognise that some children have difficulties with this for a variety of reasons and have been identified as vulnerable, in difficulty, with emotional needs or with challenging behaviour. We also know that some children simply have limited parental input that can affect their life skills development.
Modern Human can work with schools, children’s homes, local authorities, and school boarding houses to:
- Assess, design and deliver programs that enable pupils to cope with current stressors
- Design and implement interventions that provide pupils with tools to develop self-awareness, self-esteem, relationship, expression communication and interaction skills, identify and regulate emotional responses, self-manage, increase school participation, planning and organisational skills as well as problem solving.
- Design and implement strategies for student transitions e.g. life after school, relocation
- Improve life skills
All interventions can be on a one to one or group basis. We will provide ongoing progress reports and work with multi agencies to ensure consistency and continuity of approaches.

“The sessions are extremely relevant and important in allowing our young people to feel safe, heard and able to access learning both academically and personally. Our young people’s progress in behaviour and coping strategies demonstrates how invaluable the sessions are. It is evident the pupils develop an emotional resilience as a result of time with Hayley”

We primarily use activity as a therapeutic medium rather than talking therapy. That is, we engage in activity to develop the skills and strategies that you need. We can work on a one to one basis or with small groups.

Who we Work with
We work across a variety of settings including schools, local authorities, healthcare and charitable settings.
Occupational therapy (OT) is a health and social care profession, regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). Occupational therapy takes a “whole-person approach” to both mental, physical health and wellbeing and enables individuals to achieve their full potential (Royal College of Occupational Therapists 2017).
