‘Try Another Way’ Approach
Training in Systematic Instruction was developed by the late Dr. Marc Gold and is designed to ensure social inclusion for people with learning disabilities. The late Dr. Marc Gold was a pioneer in developing “The Try Another Way Approach” (TAW) which was developed to teach people with significant disabilities, skills for living and integration. He was a firm believer in the concept that “Anyone Can Learn If We Can Figure Out A Way To Teach Them” and these workshops will maintain and enforce these values.
As service providers it is our duty to provide quality service enabling the people we work with to fulfil their potential and make their dreams come true.
Our range of workshops are covered below. However, we are able to tailor our training to meet your specific needs as required.
