On Tuesday 15th November Phase 1 held a coffee morning for families focusing on the importance of play in the development of communication. Our therapy team led the session sharing information about the different types of communication skills and how language develops. We reminisced about games we had played as children and how we felt about them. Staff and families were then put to work playing some different games – we discussed how we felt while playing and the skills we were using. We were shown some great interactive games with shaving foam and colours and how to use them to promote communication for all levels. It was a really fantastic session for everyone who attended.
For information, the next Phase 1 coffee mornings are on the following dates:
- Tuesday 17th January 2023 – focus on reading and storytelling
- Tuesday 28th February 2023 – focus on personal care
We hope to see many of you there.
