Coaching in curative Steiner school

Am currently mentoring the start into class 1- eight children, five multiply handicapped, three in wheelchairs and several carers to accompany them. How to feed the different needs as a team, what are the individual needs anyway? How to develop a daily routine and form a class, how to transport the program to colleagues and the school community  – these are some of the questions i am dealing with. A heart warming affair.

In October I will be teaching a course at the Institute fuer Heilpaedagogische Lehrerausbildung in Witten, Germany, on Sensory-motor Development, Infant Reflex Integration and Larning Challenges for year 2 student teachers

Curative Teacher Training at Warrah

Back in Germany after an intensive week at Warrah Village, near Sydney. The first module of eight of a new curative teacher training course took place at Warrah Special School, the last curative Steiner school in Australia. 22 people came and spent 4 days of study. A new chapter of life seems to have started at the place. Great to see. I contributed a lecture and workshop on early child development and infant reflexes.
