Training sessions can be provided to parents, education staff or other professionals. Training sessions equip those attending to address the impact of sensory and motor skills difficulties upon the child’s daily functioning.
We are able to create specific training packages including practical group sessions or seminar style training days. The focus of the training sessions is to equip those attending to address the impact of sensory and motor skills difficulties upon the child’s daily functioning.
Parent training is delivered using an interactive style, enabling parents to ask lots of questions and take away ideas appropriate for their child’s individual needs. Sessions aim make the life of the child with challenging sensory and motor needs easier, therefore improving family life. Problems with daily living skills such as toileting, eating, dressing and sleeping are addressed in addition to challenging sensory behaviours.
Education Staff Training
For education staff, we can provide specialist training on how best to minimise a child’s difficulties within a school environment and how to maximise their ability to learn, socialise and play. Ultimately enabling staff to find ways to overcome any problems a child or young person is experiencing in participating in activities. We provide guidance and recommendations on minor classroom adaptation and specialist equipment.
We have lots of experience of providing training to other groups of professionals such as Health Visitors, Speech and Language Therapists, Physiotherapists, Paediatricians and Portage Workers. Training increases attendees’ awareness of sensory and motor skills difficulties and provides strategies that can be integrated into daily practice. Following the training, participants will be clear on basic difficulties that they can address and more complex issues that require a referral to Occupational Therapy.
