Staff at the Arc Schools collaborated to organise the first in a series of Parent Workshops for parents/carers of students at the Arc Schools with great success.
The theme for the first workshop, ‘Understanding My Child’s Needs’, enabled leaders from Kedleston, together with external colleagues, to deliver awareness sessions on Understanding Behaviour, PDA (Pathological Demand Avoidance) and Supporting Communication and Behaviour within the Home.
Parents and carers who attended the workshop were able to share their experiences with the group and discuss and share strategies. Feedback from the event was exceptionally positive, with comments such as, “Really enlightening evening learning strategies to help our child,” “well-led, useful, interesting and informative,” and “wonderful school and staff, feel very privileged to have a placement for my child”.
Many thanks to all who attended and made this first event so successful. Staff are now excitedly preparing for the next Parent Workshop in the Spring Term, date to be confirmed.
