They will cover communication aids used by children and young people with additional needs, and their families; websites for learning simple signs, and a short demonstration of greetings and fingerspelling. They will also cover how to use friends and family members to gain the voice of a child with disabilities, whilst still including that child, and share examples of thinking outside the box, to ascertain their views.• The Complex Safeguarding Team will deliver a session in respect of victim blaming and trauma informed language. The session will identify what victim blaming language looks like, to support participants in developing their knowledge around what is considered victim blaming. The session will reflect on the impact of language on children and in particular victims of exploitation, and how trauma informed approach (including use of trauma informed language) should be used. The session will also provide guidance and resources for practitioner to refer to, providing examples of alternative language suggestions.In addition to coming along and being able to contribute to your CPD, we are also looking for experienced social workers and senior social workers to join our team in Children's Services to share their expertise, experience, and case work knowledge to complement our current teams and make a difference to the families we support.Book your place today!You can find out more about working at Wigan by visiting our Children's Social Work Academy.
