Event Details

The Day 1 Essential TACPAC Training in Sensory Alignment provides all Tacpackers with the fundamental understanding and skills necessary for the effective delivery of Tacpac. It is essential training for experienced practitioners but also great if you are starting out from scratch. We look at both the ‘whys’ and ‘hows of Tacpac; combining theory and practice into a fun, interactive and stimulating day of training.

Course content:

    • Our sensory system and the role of touch

    • Understanding the importance of the basic beat

    • Experiencing the touch and music within each activity using the different objects

    • Use of  thematic material

    • how the limbic system affects our senses                           Training Photo 1

    • The central role of music in Tacpac

    • Sensory communication

    • Sensory overload

By the end of the day you will be able to:

  • Understand the theory behind Tacpac

  • Learn to internalise and effectively deliver the Tacpac activities

  • Experience ‘sensory overload’ for yourself

  • Heighten awareness of your own senses (we have more than 5)

  • Discover how to work effectively with touch

  • Build skills in multi-sensory interaction (touch–sight–movement–sound)

  • Synchronise your sense of touch with your sense of music

  • Meet other professionals in the field, parents, and carers

  • Receive a Tacpac CPD Certificate in Sensory Alignment.
