A Positive Approach to Education and Care
The Loddon Approach, known as PROACT-SCIPr-UK®, has been developed over the past 30 years by the highly acclaimed Loddon School. The school has developed a proactive model of education and care for children with extreme needs and challenging behaviour for whom a 24 hours curriculum is required.
Our training under the brand of PROACT-SCIPr-UK® (Positive Range of Options to Avoid Crisis and use Therapy – Strategies for Crisis Intervention and Prevention) seeks to share the techniques of the Loddon Approach through a structured training programme aimed at those supporting children and adults with challenging behaviours in health and social care sectors. This includes:

Our person-centred approach focuses on understanding each person to include their individual needs and desires to help them lead a fulfilling life. The Loddon Approach focuses on proactive strategies to manage behaviour resulting in a better understanding of the individual, which facilitates calmer behaviour resulting in greater engagement, enjoyment and development.
