Circle of Adults – process


Inclusive Solutions explain their inclusive problem solving model.

Circle of Adults is an in-depth process that supports professional teams to problem solve together around a  person of any age presenting with complex social, emotional and behavioural needs.

This innovative process enables adults involved in working with the  person to reflect and hypothesise about this young person’s needs. This leads to joint problem-solving around ways forward to support this person in their care or educational setting.

Circle of Adults uses a structured process and graphic facilitation to guide staff through a set of key questions to reach a deeper understanding of a person’s behaviour and needs.

This deeper understanding is used to generate new strategies for the team’s work with the  person.

The process takes around 90 minutes.

Examples of feedback from staff who have attended the sessions include:

The session was very helpful in planning ways forward and empowered for staff (Headteacher , Devon primary school)

It is the first time that we have shared how this behaviour impacts on us and it’s good to know how we can support each other (Teacher, Devon primary school)

Brilliant! Getting staff to agree and adhere to common strategies is the key to success (Teacher, Torbay)
