Event description

Description

Our speakers will be:

Lois Cameron & Rhona Matthews from Talking Mats

Julia Pollock & Leigh Anne Hunter from Teens Plus

At the heart of the Scottish government strategy for learning disability is

  • A Healthy life

  • Choice and control

  • Independence

  • Active citizenship

These should be key drivers for any service delivery. Plus if you work with children and young people with learning disabilities then the Children and Young people’s Act places significant emphasis on active participation. This is easy to say but sometimes hard to achieve particularly when the young person has learning and communication disabilities

This study day will explore how Talking Mats can help you extend your Talking Mats practice. It will

  • Report on the recent Keeping Safe project, including reviewing the areas of risk for people with a learning disability. This will include exploring how you build the capacity of individuals to raise concerns and support organisations to hear those concerns

  • Give a brief update of Talking Mats in terms of other work that links with Learning Disability, such as: service evaluation; capacity; eating and drinking; children with complex needs; the DTM and Charter for Involvement

  • Demonstrate the benefits of an educational establishment taking a whole service Talking Mats approach for young people with Autism and learning disabilities

Give you the opportunity to explore and reflect your on TM practice and extend it beyond choice making and activities

Lunch will be provided. Please inform us of any special dietery requirements at the time of booking.

Looking forward to seeing you there...
