It’s My Choice

About 

It’s My Choice explores the true life dilemmas concerning young learning disabled people who are leaving school.

The programme puts the young person at the heart of the action, helping them to make important life choices and negotiate the maze of potential pressures, confusion and anxiety that can occur when planning to leave the safety of their school.

The series of stories are adapted from the popular theatre production ‘It’s My Move’ and are presented via teacher friendly PowerPoints with embedded, interactive films.

The teachers pack, along with training videos is there to support teachers navigate the programme.
