Following the success of the training sessions held at the CPD Seminar Theatre at Naidex 2010, there are only a few training dates remaining for 2010.
Our one day course is led by Adam Thomas of Design Matters and aimed principally at Occupational Therapists. Entitled ‘The Basic Principles of Accessible Kitchen Design’ the course assumes a good basic understanding of various impairments, but no previous experience of kitchen adaptation is necessary.
The day is intensive and includes a detailed case study to help participants get a feel for the basic principles by applying them to a real life design challenge. All course materials are provided and the course can either be taken at the Disabled Living Foundation in London, or at another location by arrangement with our training coordinator, Natalie Foskett. Increasingly, local authorities are training up to 20 OTs per year by way of this course, and we have excellent feedback from them via our evaluation forms.
This course may also be of interest to Case Managers, Personal Injury Solicitors and Architects with an interest in the assessment of claims for compensation for spinal injury, acquired brain injury, people affected by thalidomide and a wide variety of other injuries. It is now possible to improve independence and quality of life with a quality kitchen that is fully accessible, looks attractive, and fits comfortably into any home.
