This weekend marks the beginning of OT week, which runs from 22nd to 28th October, so at Talking Matters we will be celebrating all things OT. The theme is "Reach Your P-OT-ential" so let’s see what OT can do to help your child reach theirs. Let’s start with an overview of what an OT does.
As a parent of a child with special needs you may wish to access the NDIA to fund services to help support your child.
For children with disabilities, it can be challenging to teach them the skill sets they will need to succeed in learning environments and to manage their emotions. In order for children to develop socially, it is crucial for parents to lead by example and pave the way for healthy behaviours to take root. Part of the way that parents can help children focus on their development is to give them the proper space to do so.
Today is World Teachers Day and it is a great time to think about how therapists and teachers can work together to best support children with additional needs.
Talking Matters also offers workshops and professional development sessions to assist educators and families in developing their skills in assisting children. Sessions are planned and run at the Talking Matters office during the year. Training sessions and workshops are also possible at your site so please contact us if you would like to discuss this option.
