Making Sense of the Senses – Workshop for parents

Making Sense of the Senses – a Workshop for parents

Monday 20th August, 6pm – 8pm at Islesburgh Community Centre

We are delighted to let you know that SIC will have two Occupational Therapists, Lesley Beath & Lindsay Park, from Training2Enable in Shetland during August.  Lindsay and Lesley offer training workshops to share the strategies that they have successfully put into place over the years, alongside their knowledge of the issues that affect many children with additional needs.  This session will explore sensory difficulties.  The trainers use a toolbox approach so by the end of training those attending will understand why issues arise and will also be given the opportunity to think about strategies they might use at home.

By the end of the course learners will be able to:

  • Recall the eight senses
  • Describe three ways in which the senses affect how we feel and act
  • Identify at least four strategies from the making sense toolbox that you will be able to use at home.

 If you would like to attend please contact SIC Workforce Development at workforce.developmentteam@shetland.gov.uk. or on 01595 744 587.
