CASE STUDY WORKSHOPS (CSW) ON 'DESIGNING FOR CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES'
CSWs provide opportunities for future/continuous learning. This online CSW is suitable for OTs and other professionals interested in the area of housing adaptation & design for children with disabilities. This workshop is facilitated by two trainers with, where possible, complimentary skill sets (e.g. Children's OT & Adaptations Surveyor). A selection of children's cases, sourced by Viva Access, is explored/problem-solved within both small-group breakout rooms and within the full-group main session room.
Facilitators assist the group(s) in identifying and exploring solutions to a range of salient issues such as client and family considerations, design options, safety issues, planning for the future and technical constraints.
(a) this is a Workshop rather than a Training Course. Learning is entirely through the medium of casework.
(b) the cases focus on children with mobility issues, developmental issues etc. Cases specific to 'Children with behaviours that challenge' are NOT included. Viva Access has a separate training course on "Adapting for Children with Behaviours that Challenge" which we hope to start running again from mid-late 2023.
