Person Centred Active Support Workshop

Presented by Ruth Firstbrook, Director at Firstbrook Training and Advisory Service, and Developmental Educator.

Organised by the DEAI and asid (SA Chapter), this 1 day Workshop will focus on how Developmental Educators and other allied health professionals can utilise the principles of Person Centred Active Support in their daily practice of providing support to disability support workers and families, to advance the skills and engagement of individuals with disability.

This will be an opportunity for some Developmental Educators to refresh their skills in Person Centred Active Support, and for those just starting out, to learn some practical skills to enhance their practice.

  3. Understanding of the importance of engagement and how effective engagement leads to improvements in quality of life
