    This is a short Documentary, giving a flavour of what we do at Full of Life. Full of Life is a charitable organisation, which has provided vital support to children and adults with disabilities and their families, for over 20 years. Throughout the years, our organisation has seen significant developments. We began as a coffee morning support group for parents of disabled children, and now we provide a range of professional advice and support services. These services are independent and practical, and it is clear from our feedback that we are also trustworthy - the gold standard in our eyes. One of the gems of our organisation is Full of Life's Service for Young People with Complex Needs. This service has won awards for excellence, and consistently provides a service that is not only fun, but is also a place for continual learning, personal development and new experiences. What is clear from this Documentary, is that at the core of Full of Life is the well being of the families we support. We continue to work to shape and develop our services to meet the ever changing and unique needs of our families, as they are our reason for being.

          This free 90-minute webinar with Kristin Barbour, Executive Director for the National Institute for Learning Development (NILD), presents participants with a unique exploration of the characteristics of learning disabilities such as dyslexia.

Research has indicated that auditory and visual discrimination, memory, figure-ground, and attention significantly impact learning. When perceptual vulnerabilities are present students can appear disinterested in learning or worse, choose to engage in inappropriate behaviors in order to shift the focus from their learning challenges. The information you will learn in this webinar includes: -Identifying three phases of the learning process -Recognizing auditory and visual processing skills needed to learn and their impact on classroom performance -Differentiating classroom behavioral problems, low motivation, and learning disabilities -Learning classroom strategies and home activities to develop processing skills

              A positive overnight camping experience could mean the difference between succeeding and struggling in life. Why? Because summer camp is the most effective place to build and develop social skills, confidence, and friendships- all of which are vital to a child's development. With a very high staff to camper ratio (32 to 36), we offer a very nurturing, supportive and non-competitive environment. This allows us to emphasize our campers’ strengths, rather than their challenges, and offers the kids with as many opportunities to shine as possible. Fun and activities are of greatest importance for your child at Camp Kirk. We discover and nurture your child's talents and abilities and we do it at his/her own pace. Through our adventure-based programming and through a daily routine of activities we provide a supportive space for kids to takes safe risks, which ultimately boosts confidence and self-esteem.
