The service provided by Gemstone’s cannot be compared to any other behaviour support service we have experienced. Gemstones provide a bespoke service of support to individual pupils who we identify as our most challenging pupils. Currently they support two pupils in our school for a 3 hour session each week and also work with the families. Children’s behaviour is usually a symptom of wider family issues so the holistic support that Gemstones provide for the family creates a greater and long lasting impact on the child’s behaviour and emotional health.
The staff are highly qualified and experienced, giving a level of assurance in their competence that is unparalleled. We receive a comprehensive report within 24 hours and typically that evening, outlining the detail and outcomes of the therapeutic session along with a range of strategies for the teacher or SENCo to apply, which means we can take any further action with immediate effect. Gemstones work very closely with us and we value this working relationship. I cannot recommend Gemstone’s highly enough.
