An Introduction to Steps Conductive Live activity

10.30am to 11.30am

Steps is a registered National Charity supporting families with preschool children who have special education needs. In this session we will introduce Steps and outline what Conductive Education is. There will be a live activity session. The Steps Chatter Box session aims to be very relaxed and relatively unstructured. You don’t have to prepare anything. If you would like to, you could have the following to hand:

  • Toys for the children to play with and to keep them entertained.
  • A handheld mirror to look at their faces (mirror on your phone / use the camera on your computer screen / iPad). You can also just as easily point to your child’s body parts together with them.
  • Bubbles / a straw in a cup with some liquid in it / something light like a leaf, a feather, ping pong ball or flour on your hand for practising “blowing”. Be as creative as you want!
  • If you would like to have your snack at the same time, that is great too.
