Workshop: Promoting Flexible Thinking and Interaction With Your Child at Home

June 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:30pm on Thursday, repeating until June 29, 2017

Content: This series of seven workshops is designed for parents only. We will be examining how children learn to be flexible in their ability to think and to communicate, and the impact of disability on this natural process and on family life. Small changes in the caregiver’s approach to the child can have a big impact on the child’s thinking processes; in each session there will be opportunity for discussion, practice, and a small homework assignment will help you to integrate the ideas once you get home to your child.

The information provided in each session builds upon previous sessions, so please plan to attend the entire series.

Participants: The series is open to any interested parents, regardless of the diagnosis or ability level of their child. At the completion of the series, parents of children who are essentially non-speaking may apply for a more intensive guiding program with one of our RDI® consultants.

Cost: $25 per person, includes all seven sessions

Dates: Thursday evenings from May 18 to June 29, 6:30-8:30

Location: Second floor, SSCY Centre (Telehealth Option available)

Parking: During evening classes you may park in the marked family stalls for free

Presented by: Lianne Belton, Occupational Therapist, RDI® Program Certified Consultant
