Programmes.

At Āwhina Education we value openness and transparency - we want you to know how we can support your family, and what exactly we do with your child for an hour each week.

What makes our programmes so effective?

Openness / Transparency

We are not afraid to cast a light on ourselves and question whether we need to change. We are open to new ideas and actively seek out advice and guidance from the experts in our field.

icon-targeted
Robust, targeted, evidence-based

We only deliver robust, evidence-based programmes, and select the resources that will best target your child’s needs, changing our plans over time as their skill set evolves.

icon-collaborative
Collaborative

In addition to our relationships with schools, we work collaboratively with local educational and clinical psychologists, and speech-language therapists, who have helped develop our strong systems and bank of resources. We also collaborate with the people who know your child best: You.

icon-monitoring
Expert monitoring

We take monitoring very seriously at Āwhina and make a point of not just monitoring your child’s progress regularly, but also monitoring our own practice every single term. Melissa works closely with the team to ensure things are ticking along as they should, and we collaborate with one another a multitude of ways each and every day to share our ideas and plans.

Our programmes

Here at Āwhina Education we value openness and transparency - we want you to know how we can support your family, and what exactly we do with your child for an hour each week.
The most important thing you need to know is that we only deliver robust, targeted, evidence-based programmes. We work collaboratively with local educational and clinical psychologists, and speech-language therapists, who have helped develop our strong systems and bank of resources.

 

The chair of our advisory board is an educational psychologist. Her responsibility is to ensure everything we do meets best practice requirements, and she regularly monitors our practice, resources and programmes.

Below is a description of the key components of what we offer. Because a lot of it is technical jargon - and can feel like gibberish if you’re new to this game! - we have made some short videos to illustrate each concept, and help you crack the code.

Our Process

Central to our process is always your child and your family. Communication and collaboration are key to ensuring what we do is working, and that your child is progressing as they should.

Research and development

The advantage of having an educational psychologist on hand is that we have someone to tell us when we could be doing things more effectively, based on the most up to date research! We value responsiveness and transformation, and are constantly looking for new ways to make our practice better and stronger.

Identifying needs

The first time we work with your child we undertake an initial assessment, so we can get a picture of what kind of gaps in their skills might need to be filled, and how we can apply our resources and programmes to their learning style.

Programme delivery

Once we have a picture of what we should be doing with your child, we draw up lesson plans. These are routinely vetted by Amelia and Melissa and we work collaboratively to ensure we are using the most appropriate methods and sequence.

Monitoring outcomes

Our assessment of your child’s abilities is not a one-off. We continue to tweak and adapt as we go along based on what we see during their sessions, and conduct monitoring testing throughout the year. This lets us look for changes in their learning to ensure we are moving in the right direction.
