Real-life meaningful opportunities to practice new skills are needed to grow and learn therefore interactions across natural environments are required. Therapy sessions are done at a location that is most comfortable and practical for learning, including education setting, day program/service, at home or in the local community. Moving forward, skills are transferred to different settings.

2. Training Solutions for Parents/Carers and Support Staff

Training for parents/carers:

Many parents can feel left behind at the rapid pace of technology changes. If you’re a parent/carer or simply just want to be able to help the person you care/work for to learn and maintain new skills, then training you matters too.
