Jane's story

We have supported teaching staff in a special education school to support 13 year old Jane, who has severe learning disabilities, to understand what was happening to her mother. With advice and practical support they were able to do some story board and memory work with Jane, to help her understand that her mother would not get better and create some lovely memories for her. This gave the staff confidence to understand that Jane should be aware of what was happening to her mum, and also to be involved in her end of life and funeral plans.
