Dear Parent/Carer,

At New Forest School we have adopted and been training our school staff in the use of Dyadic Developmental Practice (DDP) as a way of supporting our students.

This is an ongoing process designed to eventually ensure all school staff have been trained to at least Level 1 standard with a number of key staff trained to Level 2 or above.

We are pleased to also be able to offer parents/carers the opportunity to join a 3 session training course designed to introduce DDP and equip you with the basic knowledge and principles of DDP.

The training will be delivered by members of our therapy team and DDP Core Group.

I have attached a flyer which outlines the basics of DDP and itinerary for the 3 training sessions.

More information about DDP can be found on the DDP Network website:

The training will take place on:
Tuesday 30th November      3:30pm – 5:00om
Tuesday 7th December         3:30pm – 5:00om
Tuesday 14th December       3:30pm – 5:00om

If you feel this would be of interest and like to attend the training, I would be grateful if you would complete the brief survey using the link below:
