Outreach Pedestrian Coaching

There will be at least 1 qualified, D.B.S.’d, first aid trained, Road Safety Coach in attendance, with an assistant if needed.
A session normally takes about 1 hour.
The session is bespoke to the local environment and the particular needs of the clients. Before each session an evaluation is made of the client’s current knowledge of good pedestrian behaviour typical evaluation would be:

1. The Green Cross Code
2. The safest place to cross
3. How near to the kerb should you stand before crossing
4. A typical road sign
5. A typical feature

A typical route is chosen for the obstacles and risks that the client would expect to encounter and is risk assessed. The coach is experienced with working with clients with a wide range of issues, generally if the client is living at least semi independently in the community then they should be suitable for pedestrian/street-craft coaching . Most suitable for those with knowledge problems; confidence issues; mild learning difficulties; moderate autism; speech and/or language difficulties. After each session an evaluation of the client’s knowledge is taken again to assess efficacy.
Ideally give at least 2 sessions for each client and possibly more where required. Small groups are fine but individual risk will be taken into account. Clients who are likely to disrupt the learning of others must be seen singularly. For 2 sessions costs £53 where 1 coach is used.
