Kid Link Occupational Therapists are extremely passionate about working alongside teachers, families and other therapists and highly value ongoing learning and skill development. We love to share our knowledge and offer a range of presentations and workshops that are tailored to the needs of the school or group.
Some topics that may be of interest to educators or therapists include:
Understanding sensory needs, and gaining practical tips for the classroom.
Positive Behaviour Supports
Understanding challenging behaviour and implementing effective strategies to optimise inclusion.
Understanding executive functioning and strategies to support long term learning, organisation, and independence for all students.
Understanding the real social world, how to help kids make friends, and how to support more collaborative learning.
Supporting fine and gross motor development for success in the classroom.
Creating a calm classroom and supporting kids who find the demands and expectations of school too much.
We also run other professional development events that are open to parents and other professionals. These will be advertised on social media and in our termly newsletter.
