TEST is an acronym for –
Therapeutic Education (with an emphasis on) Safety and Trust.
It is a new ‘alternative educational’ provision with a specific focus:
TEST is for pupils aged 8 to 18 who:
- Need at least 2:1 support (they are likely to be but do not have to be a LAC).
- Will not attend or are not accepted into a mainstream or even a specialist school.
- Need home education or a bespoke alternative learning environment out of their care home at one or multiple venues.
- Need an emphasis on safety, trust, care and therapeutic support.
- Cannot learn until they experience calm and positive sub-conscious patterns.
What is T.E.S.T.?
Mr P from Be Super has experienced first hand the difficulties in supporting individuals who suffer from trauma and chronic stress. He has experienced great success by adopting an approach that focuses on what he has termed ‘T.E.S.T.’ (Therapeutic Education with an emphasis on Safety and Trust).
In addition to his own ‘knowing from doing;’ T.E.S.T. combines insights from ‘Hawkins’ Power vs Force (Levels of Consciousness) with the SPIM (Somatic Psychological Interactive Model) – as adapted by Prof Stephen Porges in his Polyvagal Theory. This factors in more detailed aspects of negative force (with 7 stages of trauma severity); and cross references it with 3 categories of traumatic experience – he has then further adapted it to encompass ‘all perceived stressors/challenges’ rather than just human predators (this is much more useful and accurate on a practical basis).
T.E.S.T. has been trialled and refined by Marcus Pearson aka Mr P. (co-founder of Be Super Ltd) for the past 5 years in various settings with incredible success. Marcus has combined T.E.S.T. to support those with Autism, Epilepsy, ADHD and ODD etc.
A key part of T.E.S.T. are SCP’s (SCHEDULED CYCLE OF POSITIVITY) – more here.
