Positive regard and respect for the people we support is at the centre of all workshops. Participants often report back that they came away feeling excited, inspired and passionate again about the work we do. Participants feel confident to put training into practice with fun, engaging and practical tools in their toolkit, and a fresh perspective on neurodiversity and behaviour as communication.
"I am re-thinking what is going on for my students, I feel much more prepared for Monday" - Understanding Sensory Needs in the Classroom Workshop Participant.
Story telling from years of clinical practice, as well as the lived experience of a Mum, these stories are shared sometimes with a laugh, sometimes with a tear. Elen's "down to earth" presentations make everyone feel welcome, connected to the training, and keep participants engaged and inspired across the whole day. Hands on activities are sprinkled throughout the day to support all the sensory regulation needs as well as the learning styles in the room.
"Elen is so enthusiastic and engaging - its infectious" - LEGO Therapy Training Participant."
Theory and neuroscience underpin all the hands on activities to consolidate the learning without getting stuck in the jargon. Concepts and content is broken down and explained sequentially so it is easy to understand and apply the learning to your context immediately.
"It all makes sense now. After years of trying to understand it, it finally fits in my brain comfortably" - Sensory in 60 minutes Workshop Participant.
Elen is available for professional development, training workshops, events, or conferences, all of which can be tailored to the unique needs and skill level of your group.
There is usually a 3 month wait time for workshop spaces and professional development dates so please book or inquire early.
