    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    Find out how you can begin to support neurodivergent children and young people, and how to share your knowledge with others.

    Join Salvesen Mindroom Centre at its virtual workshop to raise understanding of, and improve support for, neurodivergent children and young people who may experience learning difficulties and their families. At this workshop, you will:

    • Learn how the centre's short films about Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, DCD, and Tourette Syndrome can be used to expand your own knowledge and understanding of neurodiversity in a way that you can share.
    • Reflect on your own practice and consider adaptations that you can make to enhance the support you can offer.
    • Receive training on the workshop notes that accompany the films which will enable you to share this introductory course with staff or volunteers in your own setting.

    The workshop is £40 per person and this cost includes:

    • Shared learning with practitioners with a range of professional and personal experience.
    • 5 short films from its 'It takes all kinds of minds' series for use in your own setting.
    • A copy of the workshop notes to accompany the films. The notes are suitable for online or face-to-face delivery.
    • An electronic copy of the complete set of Salvesen Mindroom Centre resources.

    Who should attend? School staff including teachers, PSAs, front of house, senior management, volunteer co-ordinators/managers, youth workers, third sector organisations, leisure and outdoor centre staff, music and drama group leaders, staff and volunteers, after school clubs, childminders, and scout organisations.

    This workshop will take place from 10.00 - 14.00 on 22 July 2021. To book a place, e-mail Aileen Shrimpton or call on 07501 361 308.
