NDIS Participant Led Video Workshop for Sector Professionals

9:30am to 5:00pm
1 July 2019 to 2 July 2019
Crowne Plaza Canberra

Event Detail

Summer Foundation have designed a way to support people with complex cognitive and/or communication impairment to design and produce their own training videos for support workers.

We know people with complex support needs often struggle to direct the support they receive ‘in the moment’. Participant led videos (PLV) offer a way to overcome this challenge, and other related challenges like the high turn over of support staff.

The process encourages people with disability to seek out the support of a skilled disability or health sector worker (such as an Allied Health Professional or Support Co-ordinator). The Summer Foundation is offering a one day training course with disability and health sector professionals who are interested in learning this process. This training has been funded by the ACT Workforce Impact Collective and as such there is no cost to participants.

The training will include a thorough orientation to the process, resources and an opportunity to workshop the PLV steps. Following the training, a further opportunity will be available for some of those who’ve attended the training to be funded ($1,500 per video) to support an NDIS participant to create their own PLV.

Please feel free to explore the PLV process in more detail on our website (https://www.summerfoundation.org.au/documents/making-a-training-video/), including some examples of PLV made during the piloting of this process, and the resources that have been developed to support the process.

Places in this upcoming training in Canberra are limited to 25, so early bookings via trybooking (https://www.trybooking.com/book/event?eid=511351) will be essential. There are two training dates available, Monday July 1 and Tuesday July 2.

If you would like further information about this training opportunity, please feel free to reach out to Alana Dobra on 0412 193 310 or alana.dobra@summerfoundation.org.au
