Autumn 2019  …

In my spare time I am an avid crafter and pretty much a slave to Pinterest and pretty pictures on Instagram  … and it is at this time of year that I get a little jealous of those interstate or overseas that have these amazing landscape transformations with the chaning of the seasons. I just love how those with an artistic flair capture the colours and atmosphere in their paper craft and photography … sigh!.  The most that SE Qld seems to do with it’s Easter long weekend (welcome to Autumn in the subtropics) is guarantee us rain .. and this year was no exception.  I hope that you all have used the long weekend … whether it be in fine weather or not, to find a little R&R and recharge the batteries.

2019 has had a great start with some very successful workshops, including OPC in Sydney and Using Sensory Approaches in Mental Health; as well as lots of behind the scenes planning.  There is also some exciting announcements … one of which is that we are coming to Perth!  Thank you for all those very keen OTs in WA who have campaigned to get our Learning to Conquer the Wees & Poos to the West Coast – hopefully it will be a successful workshop and we can make it a regular/semi-regular occurrence. For those still on the east coast – not to worry we are also running a Wees & Poos workshop in Melbourne in December.  Our other news is that we have a new venue in Melbourne for the upcoming DCD/Dyspraxia and the role for Occupational Therapy workshop in October .. we still will be using our favorite Angliss Institute venue but its getting very popular and hard to book our preferred dates, so we have had to branch out (sigh …. maybe no profiteroles at the new venue which are my favourite menu item!). Just thought I would give you a heads up in case you operate on rote and turn up at the wrong place (something I would do!).
Also just a quick reminder that the Executive Function in School Students with Learning Difficulties has SOLD OUT  (it has been very popular indeed) … I am liaising with the presenter to see when we are able to organise a subsequent workshop (please see the EOI page), but it is unlikely until 2020.  At present I have a lot of requests to be placed on a cancellation list … Unfortunately I have several people on that list and I very rarely get cancellations .. so it might be best to put an EOI for 2020 and hopefully get in quick if we are able to organise another workshop.
