Editor’s Piece – 29 July 2014

I think this month Steph our Education Coordinator has summed up this winter well and I am sure there are a few of us that are starting to suffer from a bit of cabin fever, so don’t forget to get those Diversional Therapy and Laughter Boss skills out and into practice not just in the workplace but at home and amongst our love ones.

DTA Conference is drawing closer, so I urge those members that are still considering attending to start getting your applications in. Or consider going to a workshop if you cannot afford to attend the whole conference, some education is better than none and either way you will have earned yourself some PD points.

This month we see a lot of media releases that will affect our industry in different ways so please make sure you take time to read through them as some involve grants. Also there is another grant opportunity to our WA members you will find it under the Noticeboard section of the newsletter. We also have a couple of “Can you help?” segment this month so please contact the relevant people if you can.

Sadly, the office received no Members’ Articles – remember this is a great way to develop your writing skills, share your research or activity ideas, but if you want to also earn some easy PD points just make sure you follow the guidelines. Also it is nice to receive smaller articles too. These can include recipes, movie reviews, activity ideas, photos, bus outings or trips away with clients so don’t feel you can only share if it is for PD points the newsletter is for everything relevant to our profession and each other.’Til next month – Ed
