The Me2 Club Inclusion Training project aims to increase the inclusion of children and young people with additional needs into mainstream leisure activities. This is done by training activity leaders (e.g. guiders, sports coaches, youth workers) to increase their skills, knowledge and confidence around disability, additional needs and inclusion.
Me2 Club training workshops are offered to the following:
- Group/activity leaders within the Wokingham Borough
- Group/activity leaders outside the borough where a Me2 Club young person attends the activity
Activities include: uniformed groups, after school clubs, youth clubs, drama groups, sports activities, swimming lessons, etc. The project includes a series of open training workshops, covering a range of disability, additional needs and inclusion related topics, as well as bespoke workshops and individual consultation with groups.

|Supporting Behaviour Needs||Challenging behaviour is a sign that something isn’t working for the individual and this may be a need that is not being met or an inability to communicate their feelings. We can help you to examine the theory behind children’s behaviour, focusing on effective methods to pre-empt and de-escalate challenging behaviour allowing all children to enjoy and benefit from the group. |
The workshop is available for anyone working within mainstream activities who are looking to develop their skills when dealing with challenging behaviours for the benefit of all.

|Introduction to the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)||Children with ASD may struggle with understanding social and emotional cues and may not understand that others think differently to them. Many children on the autism spectrum have specific difficulties relating to executive function. These challenges may result in difficult behaviours that impact on not just their ability to participate in learning tasks, but also on social interactions with adults and other children. This workshop helps you gain an understanding of the difficulties faced by children with ASD.||Friday 8th March 2019|
|Helping to make your Activity more Inclusive||We examine the perceived barriers to including children with additional needs into mainstream activities and offer examples of different approaches to adapt the group so all children are involved in their own ability. There is the opportunity to put this knowledge into practice before finishing with a discussion on real scenarios. This workshop is suitable for anyone who wants to ensure that all children in their group can access the activities presented. ||Thursday 14th March 2019|
|Managing Emotions and Sensory Processing||This workshop will give you an understanding of emotions to be able to promote positive behaviour. It will also help you gain an insight into sensory processing and how it affects daily life and the impact it has on a child’s emotions. You will gain an understanding of sensory overload and sensory seeking behaviour.||Thursday 16th May 2019|
