The programme offers an exciting and diverse range of workshops across visual art, music, drama and dance, ensuring that all participants are able to find a way of expressing themselves artistically that suits their particular needs and interests. This provides severely disabled children and their families with a valuable opportunity to develop their creativity, to bond together and to socialise with other families.
Workshops are delivered by Jack Tizard School staff in partnership with specialist organisations such as the Science Museum, Soundabout and Music House for Children.
Workshops take place for three weeks during the summer holidays and during term time. Parents, carers and non-disabled siblings are all encouraged to join in and to benefit from sharing enjoyable experiences as a family. Workshops are targeted at two age groups: those aged 3-11, and those aged 12-25 and their families. This has enabled children and young people to make friends and parents to meet other parents facing similar challenges.
