Description

What community activities do young children with a disability or developmental delay enjoy? Let them show you with their photos!

Some children are better at expressing their likes or dislikes through images instead of words. In this two-part workshop, learn to use PhotoVoice: an activity where you encourage your child to take photos of activities and places they enjoy, or do not like and find challenging.

PhotoVoice is fun and promotes engagement with your child. The images are uploaded to inform community organisations or businesses about enhancing accessibility and inclusion. You and your child’s personal details are kept confidential.

Families who have done PhotoVoice say that it helped their child become more confident in expressing themselves and making their own choices.

COME ALONG TO EXPLORE:

  • How PhotoVoice enhances family engagement
  • What photos your child can take
  • Describing the photos in your child’s voice
  • How to upload the photos
  • What the photos will be used for
    In the second session, parents can ask further questions about PhotoVoice and discuss their picture-taking experience. After completing the two sessions and once the photos have been uploaded, you will receive a digital camera as a gift for your child to continue to enjoy taking photos.
