A big thank you to all the Middle and Senior School parents who joined us for the Self Advocacy workshop hosted by Dr Shamini (Dr Mini, Senior Occupational Therapist) and Ms Jennifer McCarthy (Senior Speech & Language Therapist)! #WinstedtWay
The workshop provided parents with valuable insights into the importance of self-advocacy for their children. We discussed key concepts, including promoting inclusive, respectful, and person-first language. We guided parents in helping their children understand their needs for services and modifications and empowered them to request support effectively.
Parents gained insights on helping their child recognise strengths, request accommodations, set goals, and navigate independence. At Winstedt, we emphasise the significance of person-centred conversations beyond labels.
Huge thank you to Dr Mini, Ms Jennifer and all the parents for their active participation and commitment to their children’s growth. Together, we are empowering our students to thrive!
