The Cuiken Provision service has been developed in partnership with Midlothian Council to offer intensive support to primary aged children who are having difficulties in school and need extra support for their education and in their home life.
Many of these children are struggling with difficult feelings they don't know how to cope with. And this often comes out in the way they behave.
The centre offers individual teaching, either in very small groups or one-to-one. Staff concentrate on supporting children towards their personal and social development. Staff from education, social work, health and other relevant disciplines support children and their families and where possible help these children get back into mainstream education.
Our family support workers help parents to encourage their child's personal and social development and manage difficult behaviour. As it gets easier and parents feel more able to cope with problems, they often become more confident and enjoy a better relationship with their child.
Referrals to the service are made through the Midlothian Special Professional Assessment Group.
