Students of the Mixed Employment-Training Program in the specialty of "Social Care for Dependent People in Social Institutions" held on April 18 a didactic visit to Cerebral Palsy Association in the city of Elche (ASPANIAS).
The general objective of attending the day is to know the alternative and augmentative systems of communication, so that student-workers know how to differentiate and apply in their professional future.
These systems are within the competencies of the last training unit "Psychosocial support, relational and communicative care in institutions" of the aforementioned specialty.
The visit began with the presentation of the multidisciplinary team of the Association, to continue with the visit of the facilities of the center where the realization of each workshop was explained.
It ended with direct contact with cerebral palsy users.
All this oriented to the formation of sociosanitary personnel.
The purpose of this type of educational outlets, within the Joint Employment and Training Program, is to cover knowledge related to the training received, and in turn complement it in the face of labor and professional integration.
All costs associated with this visit are borne by the subsidy granted to the City of Totana, under which 15 students are trained in the socio-health specialty.
