Abstract

This action research study aimed to develop the researcher's use of Solution Focussed techniques with children and young people with severe or moderate learning difficulties. A literature review highlighted the limited evidence base in this area and a number of concerns around the applicability of some of the techniques with this population. The research was carried out in light of the Children's and Families Bill, 2014 and related SEN Code of Practice, which emphasises person-centred planning and the Government's initiative to increase access to psychological therapies. The researcher recruited 10 young people attending specialist educational provision as participants. Solution focussed techniques were systematically trialled in partnership with them and adapted through an Action Research cycle. Video recording was utilised to analyse responses and efficacy. The young people were also consulted regarding their views of the techniques and their feedback was used to inform the development of resources and practices. These developments have the potential to inform EP's and other professionals' work in this important area.
