“I recieved Support to reduce my risky behaviour however I did not always accept the support and sometimes did the complete opposite however the support was still there and within reach.
I was supported by being allowed to have time out from the educational setting I was allowed to chill in the garden when stressed and agitated I could also go for a walk if I came back within 10 minutes this would be supervised by the staff members.
I received very adequate support with the education system at Ameina by having university qualified teachers. Some were extremely helpful and was able to teach me in the way I’m able to be taught. My learning support worker also was of great help and maintained the professional bond whilst helping and supporting me in the way I needed. I was supported by being allowed time out when I’m agitated I was allowed freedom so I did not feel enclosed a castro phobic.
My educational outcome was very high. I started Ameina with quite low grades I hadn’t been in school for over 2 years, however when I left the Ameina Centre I achieved high grades including a 6, 5 and a four. For biology I received a three even though I did not get on well with the teacher and I had not taken that subject for over two years before starting at Ameina.
Ameina Centre really helped me get used to the educational setting so when I went to college this made it less stressing and easier and helpful for me to get the best outcome in my learning environment.”
