U S Students visit May 2018
Pathways once again welcomed 17 students and their supervisors, Jen Reinke and Donald Thomas Jnr, from the University of Wisconsin – Stout in the US.
These young people spent a week at Pathways observing and interacting with the children, young adults and staff. It was a very informative time for both parties with us all thoroughly enjoying each other’s company. The students are all studying for various degrees including Occupational Therapy, Early Childhood Intervention, Teaching and Counselling. Many of them had not interacted with people with disabilities before coming to South Africa and, although they were a bit apprehensive at first, they quickly settled and joined in with activities and chatting to staff and children.
This is the second time that Pathways has hosted students from UW-Stout and we plan to continue every 2 years.
We would like to thank them all for their input, suggestions, trainings and the many sensory gifts which they brought. It was a great time of learning for all of us.
We wish them all the very best in their chosen professions.
