FREE MENTORING FOR TEACHERS AND PARENTS IN PRACTICAL MEASURES TO SUPPORT PUPILS IN SCHOOL FOR THE IDENTIFICATION AND RECOVERY OF EATING DISORDERS.
Whether or not the pupil is a patient of Foster de Young, we understand budget limitations within the teaching environment and we are committed to investing in a free education resource and training for teachers for all schools in Phuket.
In our experience schools willingly and enthusiastically work with clinicians and parents to give the pupil every chance of recovering and maintaining equal access to education. Eating disorders are very serious and can have devasting consequences. There is enormous stress on a student during pre-diagnosis and recovery and great care must be taken to nurture the student along their path.
There are important practical measures that can be taken to ensure that a pupil can safely function in what can be a rigid school environment. Our clinicians can help the school personnel understand the signs of an eating disorder and also put in place protocols between the student, the school and the parent during the recovery period.
We can advise on a great many areas including but not in any way limited to; parental discussions, phased return to the school environment, coordinating class composition with peers and teachers, peer pressure and bullying, movement of deadlines for homework and attendance, flexibility of rules, understanding achievement and goals, internet access, sport and exercise, mealtimes, punctuality, careers advice, boarding, siblings, school trips, food support, supervision, communication, understanding, judgement and observation….the list is almost inexhaustive.
The on site clinicians at Foster De Young are available to offer advice, training and resources for teachers and parents alike. Our resources are freely given as we are committed to educational investment as well as prevention and care in our local community.
We distribute FREE resource packs to all schools in Phuket and we also offer FREE first point of contact and consultation in the event of any concern over a student at school.
