This is what you can expect to learn, depending on which iteration of the workshop you are taking:
Booking the Workshop
Suitable for between 10 to 200 participants, The Askable Adult can be booked between 6:30 pm to 9pm or 7pm to 9:30pm, Monday to Thursday, as well as the occasional Sunday morning or afternoon.
This offering is usually organized by a member of a PAC or the manager or supervisor at a non-profit. Pick your day (with some options if you can’t get your first choice) and get in touch with me. We’ll work out the details and discuss tips and trips to make the workshop successful (such as offering an incentive like pizza, or having in-house childcare). After we book the workshop, I will send you advertising materials (mainly, a printable PDF poster) and the rest is up to you until it’s time for me to deliver the workshop.
The workshop is scheduled to include two 45-minute halves with a 10-minute break in between and a Q&A period afterwards. The last half hour is for informal discussion amongst participants and asides for asking private questions.
Participants can sign up to receive a follow-up book list and resource recommendations. I also will have age-appropriate books and resources for sale. Participants are encouraged to bring cash for easy sales (though cheques are also acceptable and e-transfers can be arranged.
I will travel to any location within Vancouver and the Lower Mainland to deliver the workshop, including private homes, community rooms, daycare facilities, etc. A travel fee, to be discussed, applies to workshops hosted outside of Vancouver proper.
Your venue must have enough seating for all participants to sit comfortably (preferably in a circle format for smaller groups).
Upon request, the workshop can also be adapted for diverse learners and individuals with developmental delays.
