ComFor Training at The Garden School – January 2017

Jarymke Maljaars, of the University of Leuven and Psychiatric Centre of Leuven, Belgium, was welcomed to The Garden School on 13th January 2017.  Jarymke delivered a one-day training course on the ComFor assessment.

The Garden is proud to have hosted only the second UK training in this assessment, which gives valuable insight and understanding about how our pupils make sense of the world around them.

Jarymke’s training day has enabled us to deepen our understanding and plan truly individualised augmentative communication systems for each of our pupils.

Feedback received so includes comments such as ‘Very useful training. Gave me a lot of ideas and enhanced my understanding. Definitely recommending to other colleagues’.

100% of those who attended and completed evaluations rated the overall day as ‘outstanding’.
