DABD Travel Training

DABD’s Travel Training programme helps young people with special educational needs (SEN) or additional needs develop these skills so that they can make their school or college journey on their own. This could be by walking or using the bus, train or tube.

If your child is referred to our Travel Training programme, we’ll meet with you as a family to discuss a personalised travel plan for your child which takes their needs into account.
Your child will have their own Travel Trainer allocated who will accompany them on their journey to school or college over an eight to twelve week period until we are happy that they can do this journey on their own.

Our Travel Training programme is designed to create long-term positive effects which can support young people through their transition into adulthood. This includes improved:
• social interaction skills
• life skills
• self-esteem
• management of fears and anxieties
• responsibility
• road safety awareness
• time management
• coping strategies
• communication skills
