Leader Development: “Everybody’s Welcome”- Supporting Neurodiversity

Supporting Neurodiversity Workshops

This year we will once again offer this training opportunity, in response to the survey responses received in 2021. The training will address questions like “How do I support girls with disabilities? How do I support my older leaders? How can I assist those with learning differences? What tools can I use to assist a calmer group?”

 

One of the core Values of Girls’ Brigade is Uniqueness and exploring these questions helps us implement this value.

We invite you to join us for an all-day, 3 topic workshops.

Each workshop is closely linked to the other, revealing an invaluable resource for your company if you have fidgety girls, those who need to self-regulate behaviour, who need assistance for everyday tasks, and to welcome those leaders who also have a heart for girls’ ministry but might also need neurodiverse support.

Workshop One : Creating a Safe Space – looks at supporting those who have additional needs, whether it be physical, emotional, or mental, regardless of age and how they can feel included and belong in Girls Brigade.

Workshop Two : Creating Accessible Material – this will focus on exploring Easy Read and its role in providing an inclusive environment.

Workshop Three : Creating a Sensory Oasis – a hands-on workshop where you can explore and create some of tools that are helpful for supporting neurodiversity in a Girls Brigade environment.
