At the start of the programme Jonathan seemed to find it challenging to work with the horses. They seemed to overwhelm him, and he struggled to move around the yard and handle his emotions with them which led to him not wanting to attend his sessions.
Coach adapted the session to re-engage by using Lego.
Jonathan was keen to build ‘Lego robots’ so this allowed coach to link the learning outcomes into this. They spoke about building friendships and relationships, different characteristics of others, managing our emotions and feelings and being healthy, all linked into the different robot characters he had created.
