A continuing professional development (CPD) training session, about creative play as a method for working with children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).
Led by artist educators Katriona Beales and Ali Eisa, you'll learn about the development and application of creative play methods in working with children and young people with SEND. Hands-on training in creative play activities will take place in Katriona's participatory installation As We Are But Not As You Know Us, including the use of green screen technology delivered through an iPad.
The session will end with reflection and group discussion on key benefits and challenges arising from creative play methods, and working with children with SEND.
This CPD session is best suited for Primary and Secondary school teachers; artist educators; arts professionals; Learning and Engagement teams in art, culture and heritage; and youth and community professionals.
Since Katriona received workshop leader training with Creative Partnerships in 2006, she has worked extensively as an artist educator and workshop leader.
She have a wealth of experience, particularly in working with SEND, KS4 and 5 students and excluded young people from pupil referral units. She was one of the Tate's Artist Workshop Leaders (2013-14), leading SEND workshops as well as primary and secondary school workshops in response to the collections at Tate Britain and Tate Modern.
