Personal, positive interaction is a major part of Second Family English. We enjoy having conversations, shopping, sending phone messages, and hanging out over coffee in our Family Circles.
For our Lifestyle Assistance sessions, we also have a 'Communication Notebook'.
A Communication Notebook is a series of hand-written messages or letters shared between a Second Family English carer and a family. While it's a great format to inform families of upcoming events and programs, it's mostly used to list interesting moments throughout the day including jokes, pictures, and stories. It's a communication tool which is personal, and is useful as a means to check back on information from prior sessions.
