Practical Engaging Lectures for those working with children and adults with additional needs
we help you understand the children’s needs
We offer practical, engaging lectures in third level facilities such as Early Childhood Courses and Primary School Teaching courses. This gives the participants an opportunity to experience firsthand the work that we do with children who have additional needs.
These lectures are practical, allowing participants to engage in the activities, understand the principles behind them and perform some of the tasks that we use with children who have additional needs.
We also work a lot on mindset, changing the focus to participation, learning, developing new skills and celebrating all abilities.
We incorporate a question and answer section, allowing the participants an opportunity to learn from our experiences working with children and adults with additional needs.
A big part of these lectures is promoting inclusion and educating the people who will be working with children. We need them to understand that every class needs to be inclusive and suitable for all abilities. In doing these practical lectures we can show the participants how to adapt tasks, think outside the box and to understand that children with additional needs can easily be catered for with a bit of planning and by taking time to understand the children’s needs beforehand.
Our training aims to give the participants the confidence and tools they need to design activities suitable for every child in their class.
