Workshops

 
 
 
 

During these parent and educator information workshops, we provide a supportive environment to collaboratively work with other parents & educators regarding the needs of their child or children.

Our services aim to provide a relaxed approach to learning about supporting children regardless of their abilities or individual needs. We collaboratively explore with you 'what are you currently doing? by identifying your strengths and challenges, what can we change? and work with you to learn about implementing positive changes in your children's lives. Our advice and strategies can be used to apply to all children and we can work to further individualise programs and strategies with you if this is something that you feel you may need with your child.
