A lively, fun poetry workshop (and maybe a bit of performance!) where participants who use AAC will, after warm-ups, get to attempt a love poem – not to a person, but to a favourite THING.
Working with young people at Victoria Education Centre in Bournemouth, this exercise has become a firm favourite, freeing up participants to talk about disability and their everyday lives from an unusual, quirky angle – resulting in unlikely, revealing love poems to wheelchairs, communication iPads and eye gaze computers.
Note: It is recommended that participants be accompanied by an assistant to help with writing, sharing ideas, etc, as appropriate.
