Our Young Patrons supporting Children’s Mental Health Week 2024

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.16″ _module_preset=”default” hover_enabled=”0″ global_colors_info=”{}” sticky_enabled=”0″]

This week is Children’s Mental Health Week and the theme is  ”Growing Together“.

Growing Together is about growing emotionally and finding ways to help each other grow. Challenges and setbacks can help us to grow and adapt and trying new things can help us to move beyond our comfort zone into a new realm of possibility and potential.
However, emotional growth is often a gradual process that happens over time, and sometimes we might feel a bit ‘stuck’.

We are fortunate to have a diverse and talented group of Young Patrons who help to raise Autism Awareness and are passionate to change the perceptions on Autism. We cannot do this alone and this is why our incredible Young Patrons are so important and fantastic role models. 
Click here to find out more about our young patrons who are helping us spread the word who are passionate about helping with our mission.

How dance makes me feel, it makes feel at ease, alive, and powerful.

It’s the same way when I make music, except I’m not writing words but instead moving to them and doing my own interpretation. Dance to me is basically just music but presenting and releasing my emotions in a non-lyrical form.

Here at Studio 4 we are an inclusive dance organisation that offer ALL young people and dancers an opportunity to express themselves. We celebrate that being different is COOL and encourage all those we work with to be kind and embrace who they are.

Working with young people with Autism has allowed our practice to evolve and be more inclusive. Teachers and dancers have learnt to be more patient, flexible and considerate of each other’s needs. We are proud to work with many young people with Autism and disabilities.

As an organisation we encourage ALL young people to achieve their absolute best.

Dancing helps me feel calm less stressed and gives me an energy boost I feel more confident now as I’m not the best dancer, but when I perform i feel it helps me send out positive vibes and it helps with my confidences and improves me emotionally, I feel happy and warm inside especially after a busy day at UNI.

An article from our Ambassador Paul Isaacs
Supporting Children’s Mental Health Week 2023

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.19.5″ _module_preset=”default” hover_enabled=”0″ global_colors_info=”{}” sticky_enabled=”0″]

Children are little people who are developing, growing, and living so maybe connecting the somewhat obvious link to child and mental health is key?

Environmental Cladding

As adults we are a product of one’s environment, belief systems, worldly expectations, concepts of what is “normal” and bias concepts of what is “other”.

Our “World” Through the lenses of others

Core beliefs begin from birth to late infancy they come from people of significance in our lives, their words, their actions and the can delve into the subconscious.

Connecting With Others 

Maybe this is the multifaceted starting point for mental health challenges? attachment to others? Friendships? Future relationships? Our ideas about sexuality and/or sexual relationships.

Perceptual Self or Connected Self?

You could say one is born a “clean slate” foundation wise and with a mixture of nature and nurture (or lack thereof).

One’s ideas of the world start to emerge from observational and situational circumstances

Knowing “You”

Internal growth starts early an adult is a product of their childhood environment.

A journey into the interior is not meant to be a pleasant adventure but it’s worthy if the goal is to find who you really are.

Putting your legs up against a wall does wonders for your body and mind!

Did you know that putting your legs up against a wall for a few minutes every day does absolute wonders for your body and mental health ?

Christmas is a beautiful and magical time of year but can be really stressful and difficult too, especially if you or your child are neurodivergent .

By simply resting your legs against a wall, the whole nervous system is calmed and soothed, stress is eased and the heart rate and blood pressure come right down and stabilise again.

Blood is pumped to our core instead of all our muscles if we or our child have or are about to hit that dreaded Red Zone.

The body calms and grounds itself. Everything settles down.

Ninety percent of our serotonin, the neurotransmitter of happiness, confidence and self-esteem, is in our gut. As well as tonnes of that completely delicious dopamine which is all about attention, focus, perspective , clear thinking and the gorgeous feeling of reward.

Lying like this helps all of that zoom up the vagus nerve to the brain, leaving us calm and refreshed.

This position also improves sleep and digestion as well as reducing headaches.

If you suffer with swollen ankles or varicose veins, it’s also wonderful for this too !

Almost anyone can do it, even if assistance is needed.

The only contraindication is if you are epileptic.

So I wish you a beautiful, relaxed and happy festive season and a wonderful New Year.

See you in 2023!!!

Lots of love, Giuliana xx

SEND in Museums Advocacy Film – an article by our Charity Champion Kellie Barker

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.19.2″ _module_preset=”default” global_colors_info=”{}”]

Oscar and I were honoured to take part in a short film made by #SENDinMuseums funded by @acenational.

Museums are very sensory for us and the reasonable adjustments that museums make including the sensory backpacks mean we can adjust Oscar visit even further, meaning we can enjoy a space together as a family.

The film is to promote how museums need to be on the agenda for education and leaker for families of SEND and marks a local school as they explore the Beaney museum in a sensory way.

Personally, museums hold a lot of joy for us they allow Oscar to explore history and nature and feed his sensory diet in a place that is calm, and we have only ever had positive experiences in museums, it’s wonderful to enjoy them together.

Oscar very much enjoyed taking direction during the filming and really enjoyed all the different area of the museum from dinosaurs to Egypt.

The film was commissioned by ace national at Maidstone museums, please watch!

How hanging upside down stimulates the vestibular system – Giuliana Wheater

Do you or your child need to always be on the go , have trouble sitting still & concentrating ,bump into things or other people ,constantly fidgets , can play “rough” or “not know their own strength “?

Are you or your child prone to acting impulsively?

These are all signs that the vestibular system is under active.

Kids with an under responsive vestibular system may display signs army school that are deemed “behavioural.”

Movement breaks such as hanging backwards over a large exercise ball. I think these should be in all classrooms for anyone to use.

So, what is the vestibular system?

Basically, it is one of our sensory systems, just like sight, smell or taste.

It is located in the inner ear and is all about movement and balance.

It also regulates our motor skills, coordination , posture, body awareness and spatial awareness.

Hanging upside down provides a powerful dose of stimulation which is necessary for PREVENTING SENSORY RELATED MELTDOWNS!!!

Isn’t that amazing?!

Kids who excessively seek vestibular input can have it seriously interfere with their daily functioning.

It is actually almost IMPOSSIBLE for a child whose vestibular system is unresponsive to sit still and concentrate at school.

The benefits of hanging upside down can last for HOURS!!

And benefit EVERYONE!

In fact if everyone did it in short increments throughout the day , what a difference it would make up emotional regulation, focus attention and productivity .

  1. The whole nervous system is regulated as the vestibular system provides unique input.
  2. It can be calming or alerting.
  3. PREVENTS MELTDOWNS
  4. Relieved back pain by taking pressure off the discs.
  5. It IMPROVES BRAIN FUNCTION .
  6. IMPROVED EMOTIONAL REGULATION.
  7. Improved ability to learn new information .

So whether it’s monkey bars, hanging off the edge of the sofa or a therapy/exercise ball or using an indoor trapeze , hanging upside down I’d scientifically proven to be good for you !!

And its great fun to see the world from a different perspective!

See you next week. Lots of love, Giuliana

Anna shared:

“The big day is almost here! I think sometimes families of autistic children are under a lot of pressure to have the best, most magical, day at Christmas, and for a lot of different reasons, it is not always possible for us all.

I am aware lots of families of children with autistic children or adults struggle so it is better to have the very best day we can, under these uncertain times and whatever our circumstances may be .Although Christmas is a very special day for a lot of families, at the end of the day really it is just another day.

Every year at Christmas as a family it takes a good while to prepare Christmas Dinner. We manage 15 mins at dinner table all together then the boys are gone to have down time and do their own thing. This is what works for them I am sure others have similar experiences. One year we managed 18 mins!!

I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday, as is traditional. I hope that each and every one of my friends and followers that they are with someone who is special to them, and that Christmas is the best it can be. All the best love Anna and all at Anna Kennedy Online.”

JAAQ is a new mental health social media platform and brings together world-leading mental health professionals to answer thousands of questions about all kinds of topics.

Anna was approached by Danny Gray and the JAAQ team to be one of the 50 first content creators for this new Social Media Mental Health platform since Anna Kennedy Online are recognised as a charity that support many families of Autistic children and adults.

JAAQ were so blown away by Anna Kennedy’s enthusiasm and drive that they agreed to film the well-known performing arts show Autism’s got Talent this year. They have also agreed to film next year’s show since they said this was a fantastic platform for talented autistic children and adults to showcase their talent.

Kieron Lee one of Anna’s charity Ambassadors and past Autism’s got Talent performer launched his debut single at the JAAQ Mental Health launch in Central London last week.

Kieron shared:

“It has been an absolute honour and privilege to work with JAAQ on the official music video for my debut single ‘NYN.’ I cannot thank the team of lads for believing in me and making someone who often feels misunderstood so comfortable and appreciated.

The team at JAAQ have inspired my drive to raise more awareness surrounding mental health and autism, these people are helping shape a better tomorrow and it is so inspiring.

The official music video was premiered at the JAAQ launch and the experience was surreal. I was so proud and honoured to be a part of something that will change the lives of so many.

This is an amazing platform to spread the word about the work of our charity and to raise autism awareness and acceptance through my experience as a founder of autism services, founder of Anna Kennedy Online autism charity, and my own personal experience as a mother and wife.

Lots more to come on this Social Media platform and the perfect place to ‘Just Ask a Question’. This is going to be a fantastic platform for our charity sharing our work.  It is completely free no costs involved and such a useful resource.
