Summer Foundation

The Summer Foundation have designed a way to support people with complex cognitive and/or communication impairment to design and produce their own training videos for support workers.  

They know people with complex support needs often struggle to direct the support they receive ‘in the moment’. Participant Led Videos (PLV) offer a way to overcome this challenge, and other related challenges like the high turn over of support staff.

The Summer Foundation is offering a one day training workshop in Canberra with support coordinators and allied health professionals who are interested in learning this process.  This training has been funded by the ACT Workforce Impact Collective and as such there is no cost to participants.
