The Maltby Centre is now offering a series of online workshops for caregivers. These workshops are designed to help parents understand concepts related to Applied Behaviour Analysis, access resources and increase overall parent capacity. This online workshop is for parents living in Ontario with a valid OAP registration number.
The Hidden Curriculum refers to the set of rules or guidelines that are often not directly taught but are assumed to be known. This curriculum contains items that impact social interactions, school performance, and sometimes health and well-being such as unspoken rules, slang, metaphors, body language, etc. This workshop includes practical tips for teaching hidden social needs to children and youth and stresses the importance of making these a part of everyday life. As part of Foundational Family Services, you may choose to meet for an individual session with a Family Support Coordinator following this presentation to help you apply the content of this workshop to your specific family situation.
As a result of participating in this workshop, you will be able to:
1. Define the hidden curriculum in relation to your child or youth and family
2. Identify and describe areas of the hidden curriculum that may be helpful to teach your child or youth in the home and community settings
3. Apply the strategies and tools necessary to teach the hidden curriculum to your child or youth
