Workshops

Our workshops are hands-on and practical, and provide a range of developmentally appropriate ideas for use in therapy with preschool and primary school children and their families. Both new and experienced therapists have enjoyed learning about our creative and engaging therapy activities. The number of participants in each workshop is limited (maximum 35). Psychologists, school counsellors, occupational therapists, social workers, speech pathologists, family therapists, and other mental health clinicians have found our workshops helpful.
