In this week’s vlog I introduce the Window of Tolerance – and how it is a useful tool for understanding, differentiating and adapting lessons to meet the needs of our pupils with Behaviour needs, SEMH, ADHD etc.

The Window of Tolerance was introduced to me by the fabulous Frédèrique Lambrakis-Haddad, therapist, founder and lead practitioner at; and expert interviewee in my book “Miss, I don’t give a sh*t” Engaging with Challenging Behaviour in Schools.
