Genius Within is a social enterprise that until now has only worked with adults. We were continually asked about what support we could offer under 18s and as a result, have spent the past year developing our new service: Blooming Genius.
Blooming Genius offers a range of services directly to children, and also coaching based training to parents, carers, teachers and professionals.
Kit Messenger, our head of education has developed a novel programme that she has called The Empowerment Approach™.
The Empowerment Approach™ is a way of working with young people that utilises a range of coaching techniques and models to remove barriers to learning, leading to student empowerment, academic success and lasting self-efficacy.
It is particularly useful for children who have neurodiversity, either diagnosed or undiagnosed, who might find the typical reward/punishment cycle exhausting and unachievable.
You can view a short presentation on our approach here.
