This course is designed to support SNAs in their knowledge of how creative activities such as art can support a child with special educational needs.(SEN).

The first part of the workshop will help SNAs to appreciate how children with SEN may come to terms with their challenges. For example, children on the autistic spectrum will benefit from being in contact with certain art materials, which may increase tolerance for unpleasant stimuli, whilst channelling challenging behaviours, sensory fixations etc into creative activity.

The second part of the workshop is designed to enhance the SNAs understanding and empathy for the children in their care.

TEST 2r is a comprehensive assessment tool used to screen and pin-point the emergent literacy skills which a 5 - 6 year old child should have acquired.

The screener test made up of five subtests (tasks) is administered  as a means of formative assessment. If a child does not perform well in a particular subtest (or subtests), the SET will administer subtests 6-18 which are more diagnostic in nature in order to clarify specific subskill needs.   Once the test has been administered and scored, results can be entered on the online TEST2r website www.test2r.ie to generate a written report.  Based on these results, appropriate interventions are planned which are supported by resources in the teachers’ manual or from the listed online resources. 

Further information on TEST2r Assessment kit is on www.test2r.ie, Blackrock Education Centre

Dear Principal,

Principalship in modern times has become a challenging and demanding position and it is acknowledged that principals require ongoing support.

In response to this need, the Education Centre, Tralee in conjunction with PDST is offering the opportunity to principals to come together with fellow principals to collaborate and learn from each other under the guidance of a skilled school leader and facilitator. (Jody O’ Connor)

The programme will consist of four sessions in the school year 2019/20. At these sessions the PDST facilitator will provide an opportunity for you to share your experiences, collaborate and learn from colleagues who are facing similar leadership decisions. The agenda for these sessions will be set by you the participants based on your needs. A minimum of 3-5 years’ experience as a Principal is required to take part in these sessions.

An information meeting will be held in the Education Centre Tralee on 12th of September at 5pm where you will be furnished with all details. Please register your interest by booking your place on the Education Centre website at www.edcentretralee.ie

Yours sincerely,

Nuala Taaffe

Team Leader

Day 1 - 01. Website frontpage Introduction from kerrynikki on Vimeo.

My name is Nikki Roberts. I hail from Greystones in Co. Wicklow and now live in Killorglin, Co. Kerry. I have a medical background having worked within mental health in both public & private sectors for the last 3 decades. I hold MA (Hons) Art Psychotherapy BA (Hons) degrees and have a private practice as well as holding clinics at various educational, healthcare and industry -based locations. I am qualified as a Hypnotherapist, Psychotherapist and also as a Master Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) Practitioner. I studied at the Dun Laoghaire College of Art and Design, Dublin and Crawford College of Art & Design, Cork. I work as an Art Psychotherapist for the South West Counselling Centre, South Kerry Development Partnership (SKDP) and am Resident Psychotherapist at the ISK Intermediate School, Killorglin. I hold voluntary monthly clinics at Recovery Haven Kerry Cancer Support. I am a Reiki Master, Intuitive and Pranic Energy Healing Practitioner. I facilitate face to face CPD courses and Croke Park Hours for schools nationwide and am the Creative Designer for “Difference Days” – (an organisation that runs corporate socially responsible projects - featuring on TV3 & RTE)

“I AM” – Integrating Art & Mindfulness - is a new user friendly online course. Participants can explore the importance of leading a holistic lifestyle and how to integrate it simply into their daily routine. This course provides participants with tools to support their own positive mental health and wellbeing and that of their students through the medium of art and meditative practices.

The “I AM” course is a gentle and thought provoking course that offers the participant calm, relaxing and peaceful meditations through the use of self-soothing techniques and exercises to allow introspective and contemplative reflection.

“I AM” seamlessly integrates with both the Visual Arts and SPHE curriculum. The course considers how art, meditation and mindfulness can be used to manage stress, increase one’s ability to cope in challenging situations and build mental and emotional resilience.

The “I AM” course provides a yearly scheme that demonstrates how mindfulness and the Visual Arts are integrated. Individual lesson plans expand on the yearly plan. There is no need to possess any perceived artistic abilities. This is a course that offers a platform to use the medium of art as a self-soothing tool. There is no right or wrong way of creating an image and there will be no critiquing of your artwork. The images are simply for you to consider and review.

PARTICIPANTS WHO SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETE THE 20 HOUR “I AM” ONLINE COURSE QUALIFY FOR EPV DAYS
