Young people are able to make medium to long term goals. A goal ladder allows the breaking down of these goals into smaller more achievable targets. For example, a child may want to play football with their friends as more long term aim but may be worried that may not be able to achieve this.
An example of this may look something like this:
Step 1 – Get a football
Step 2 – Get more confident at kicking a ball by myself
Step 3 – Play football with family member – becoming more confident
Step 4 – Play football with friends
The attached goal ladder provides a document to support help children do this.
