Handling Children with Special Needs

1 Day Workshop for Parents, Carers and Therapists work with Children With Special Needs. Participants will learn how to handle children on land and in water in a way that helps the child to learn. The emphasis is on observation and handling that is playful but therapeutic. For a child that is restricted and confined on land, the water offers a sense of possibility. This allows an exploration of movement and facilitation of connections in the body. Through skilled observation and handling, the child is guided to make discoveries that are more profound and lasting than if the child is forced to move in a particular way. It is process of learning that is non-threatening and enjoyable for both child and carer.
