Who should attend?
This two-day course is aimed at experienced health professionals working with children with neurodevelopmental disabilities including Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists within clinical practice or research posts. Other professions may be considered providing you have the experience of working with children with disabilities (please contact us to discuss if you are uncertain).

On completing this course you will be able to:

  • Demonstrate how to select appropriate toys for a Mini-AHA play session
  • Demonstrate the set-up and video-recording of the session and how toys are used to provoke bimanual play in young children
  • Produce reliable scores according to the criteria in the manual
  • Understand the constructs upon which the Mini-AHA is based and describe early psychometric evidence
  • Interpret and communicate outcomes from the testing procedures

Please note: There are only 24 spaces available so it’s best to book early to avoid disappointment.
