WHO IS IT FOR? People who are in contact with children who require extra support in some capacity. Designed to an opportunity space for adults to learn new skills and build confidence, the programme will build on what you already know. There will be time for discussions, sharing experiences and to ask questions.
HOW WILL I LEARN? This workshop will be highly experiential and will incorporate the presentation of ideas, awareness through movement explorations and interactive small group activities.
Learning through movement is a language in which children are experts. Over four session you’ll have opportunities to be curious, ask questions and develop your understanding of movement and sensation. You’ll build on your own memories of this language which was foremost for you as a child.
With the focus on functional movement, you will learn through sensory and movement activities, to create new practical approaches to support the children in your life. You will take away ideas to explore in the week between each session.
