“I wanted to see what my little brother gets up to all day!”
That’s one of the reasons why Henar chose to spend her work experience week at CPotential. Henar, 16, attends Dwight School in Friern Barnet and her brother has been coming to CPotential for three years.
She says, “It was also a good opportunity to learn more about how CPotential helps children with disabilities like my brother.”
As well as spending time with him in his classes – “I think I was a bit of a distraction!” – Henar sat in with the nursery class, an occupational therapy session and a sensory integration session.
She also got to see how we deliver Conductive Education to help each child be as active as possible. “It was interesting to see how the children react to the activities and how they make progress.”
The experience may well be useful going forward as Henar is interested in studying psychology. Maybe she’ll be back one day with us in a professional capacity!
