Playful Paediatrics in Action! series

Practical Activities and Tips and Tricks that make up the everyday experience of Paediatrics

This series of FREE workshops is provided to prepare 3rd & 4th year Speech and Occupational Therapy students for the fun and reality of working in paediatrics. Let us help you really ‘know’ what Paediatrics entails, while learning ‘job ready’ skills.

Come along to learn at each session that is practical in focus:

  • Specific treatment activities and ideas relevant to the focus topic
  • Tips and tricks about delivering activities / intervention methods that University doesn’t teach you
  • The ‘lived experience’ of working with children delivered by passionate experienced practitioners
  • See for yourself what ‘a day in the life of’ a Paediatric therapist really looks like?
  • Question and answer time – both clinically as well as socially with experienced clinicians (so you can ask anything!)
