Tacpac UK is returning to New South Wales in March 2019 with NESA accreditation, Trainings and Tutorials
“Our first language is not spoken, but Sensory.
Tacpac is all about Sensory Communication.
Tacpac slows everything down, so that our everyone can understand in a Sensory way”
We are delighted to tell you that Tacpac Training UK is once again returning to New South Wales in March 2019 to do:
- Tacpac Trainings in Sensory Alignment (Essentials & Advanced), including professional accreditation through NESA(NSW Education Standards Authority)
- Tacpac Tutorials
The Essentials Training (6 hrs, Bankstown Public School, 19 March) offers: the theory behind Tacpac, and the confidence and skills in multi-sensory interaction to effectively deliver the Tacpac activities. The Advanced Training Day (6 hrs, Bankstown Public School, 20 March) enhances: understanding of the sensory world and brain development, observation skills, confidence with touch and music, familiarity with Tacpac objects, and linking to themes and curriculum. The trainings are both tremendously rewarding and fun as you meet fellow Tacpackers (professionals, parents, carers) all with their own stories and experiences to share.
With a Tacpac Tutorial, get help in your own setting to develop awareness, knowledge, skills and confidence for your Tacpac sessions. Hilary Wainer, creator of Tacpac, and the lead trainer, will take you through preparation, a live video link to your own Tacpac session with your pupils/clients, and written feedback after the session. Tacpac Tutorials give you best practice techniques directly relevant to your own group, and help build mutual, practical support amongst your Tacpacking team.
