Description

The Power of Meaningful Moments

“How can we support people to have purpose & value in their day?”

This practical workshop will focus on the power of creating valued roles for children and adults with disabilities. Those attending will leave with a better understanding of how to improve the quality of someone's day, based on building genuine relationships and roles, rather than only supporting them in activities.

This workshop will also examine ways in which people with disabilities can increase their involvement within their own organizations and the surrounding community. Cara will give realistic first steps for Community Building, and how to support people with disabilities to build up dignity, responsibility and self-esteem.

  • What does it really mean to be included? A look at the difference between integrated and inclusive experiences.
  • How do we define community?
  • How do we start to connect to the community?
  • What are valued roles? How can we apply this information to our work?
  • How can I shift to focus more on roles, rather than just activities?
  • How can we support people with disabilities to build up dignity and self-esteem?

Tickets are $50 each or $400 for 10. There are two sessions being offered: 9am-12pm and 1pm-4pm.
