Parents of the young adults attending the Resource Centre at Wardija were invited to attend a talk on Wednesday 29th January, 2014.
There was quite a good turnout of parents who were addressed by Dr. Christopher Sciberras M.D. Dr. Sciberras’ presentation focused on the services provided for persons with disability. The parents found this presentation to be not only interesting but also very valid since it addressed issues which they have to face on a daily basis. A number of questions were asked by the audience.
Following this presentation the team coordinating the Job Exposure Scheme (JES) informed the audience about the JES. To do so they made a presentation explaining the selection process for this Scheme, the objectives of the Scheme and how they are collaborating with members of staff at the Centre to widen the scope of learning being provided at the Centre. A video of the participants was also shown to the parents. A number of questions/comments were then made by the audience.
