Kids Hub are delighted to be bringing to Geraldton, Daniel Burton from Educated by Nature
Nature provides multi-sensory experiences vital for healthy brain development! The diversity of natural environments and experiences provides positive and challenging sensory opportunities for children and adults alike. A strong foundation of these experiences not only helps children with sensory integration but also creates memorable learning experiences, engages creativity and problem solving, promotes relaxation and fosters intimacy and affection for nature.
Kids Hub will be hosting Prue Matthews from AbleKids Occupational Therapy to present about using technology in the classroom to assist children with learning difficulties.
