REGISTRATION FORM for Montessori Methods for Dementia™ - A Focus on the Person and the Prepared Environment
24/04/2012, 3:18 PM
This two-day program focuses on Montessori Methods for Dementia™, an innovative method of working with older adults living with cognitive and/or physical impairments. Montessori Methods for Dementia™ are based on the educational philosophies of famed childhood educator Dr. Maria Montessori. Dr. Cameron Camp, Research Scientist, Educator and Author, from Cleveland, Ohio, discovered that Dr. Montessori’s philosophies and principles could be effectively adapted to dementia programming. Research has provided clear evidence of increased levels of engagement and participation in activities when Montessori approaches are implemented with persons with dementia. Participants in this workshop will learn about the basic principles of Montessori Programming, along with practical “hands-on” opportunities to apply the techniques and consider how this philosophy of care can be adopted for their clients and programs. The first day of the program focuses on the facts (knowledge) and the second day focuses on putting the concepts into practice for specific clients, activities and environments.
