Storytellers NSW EVENT: Bookings Open Soon- Limited to 24 participants

Facilitator: Louise Coigley UK.

This is a practical one-day workshop designed to challenge and enhance the participants’ storytelling skills, so as to acknowledge and engage children and adults with communication challenges. For those who have attended previous workshops with Louise, this is an opportunity to deepen their application of Lis'n Tell techniques.

We will explore:

● From the biographical to the 'magical' - exercises in narrative and imagination

● The ʻIntroʼ and the ʻOutroʼ of the story, and importance of these for attention levels and understanding
● Rhythm and role, rhyme, repetition and ritual, how these techniques facilitate and enhance learning, communication and social skills, with reference to research and evidence
● Voice and gesture techniques to enhance storytelling skills, memory, learning, communication and social skills

● Practising the art of pausing, and call and response to promote spontaneous participation
● Demonstrations, questions and discussion
● Seeing and placing what you are saying - exercising the imagination

Louise reserves the right to adjust the agenda to suit the participants' particular needs as appropriate.
