The Virtual Activity Programme developed by PAMIS has been designed to support the physical and emotional well-being of families at this difficult time. The purposeful and meaningful activities offered in this programme provide opportunities for families to connect with each other.
There is a multi-sensory story guide, full of ideas for creating wonderful multi-sensory stories which people can do together and share with others online should they choose to.
There is a wonderful drama resource created for PAMIS by Heather Molloy. This resource also offers the opportunity for hours of fun, where the whole family can get involved in a drama performance.
Caroline Hill from Making SENse Creative Services Ltd. has created a marvellous sensory crafts recipe book for PAMIS. Each day her Facebook Live sessions accompany the recipes. Try out the recipes yourselves and have some sensory fun.
Music Therapist,Fiona Sharp of F Sharp Music has created a wonderful booklet of how to make your own musical instruments. Videos to accompany this can also be seen on her Facebook Page. Virtual Community Music Sessions are currently offered twice weekly.
Art Therapist, Ashlynn Wardle is delivering wonderful Art for Well-being virtual sessions for families. When you book on the session you receive the wonderful booklet Ashlynn has developed for the sessions.
Andrew Smart has created a Sporting Opportunities Motor Activities (SOMA) guide. This guide is designed to offer suggestions and support with activities in the SOMA programme and Andrew is on hand if anyone has any questions or needs any help with any aspect of the activities in the guide.
All the activities have been designed with connection in mind. In times of isolation and unfamiliar routines we hope you find these activities useful and look forward to connecting with you though our virtual programme.
