This involves parents of “Zippy” children, to think about how they might be able to use it with their children at home.
In collaboration with Partnership for Children, we have developed a set of activities for parents These are given to them in session 1 of the 4-session pilot programme with the agreement that they will try out at least one activity each week with their child at home, and provide us with feedback on their effectiveness.
We have developed and ran a Zippy at Home programme in two schools during 2012-13. The groups were small with a maximum size of 12 people. We ran groups in three Walker Primary schools in 2013-14, and are currently working with 2 more Newcastle schools.
