Thursday 20th May from 10.00-12.00 noon
Justyna will be talking about the RSBC and her role
As a Family Practitioner within the RSBC Families First service, I provide family support across Yorkshire and Humber. This support is focussed around a family’s emotional needs, particularly at times of difficulty such as diagnosis, deterioration of vision and life events such as starting or moving school; and moving onto adulthood.
As a service we aim to provide evidence-based interventions that build emotional resilience, improve coping skills and promote positive parenting. With the child or young person at the centre of our work, we offer a holistic approach which considers the needs of the whole family and looks to work in partnership with the child or young person, their family and a wider professional network.
Donna will be explaining the SaPTS Service
The team has qualified Specialist Sensory Support Teachers, Physical Support Teachers, Sensory Support Officers (SSOs) and Sensory Support Assistants (SSAs), an Habilitation Officer, and a Technical Resource Officer.
One of our Sensory Support Assistants is deaf and provides a positive role model for deaf children. The teachers have experience of mainstream and/or special schools. The team have additional relevant
qualifications, including the CENTAUR Handling People with Special Needs Education Masterclass Course, British Sign Language and Braille and the RNIB Partners In Learning qualification.
