Fermoy Action Children’s Education, known as FACE, is a teenage group set up in Fermoy, for young people with Specific Learning Difficulties.
The objective of FACE is to run workshops on a weekly basis, in order to identify and help the children with their learning difficulties. Furthermore, to organise Speech and Language workshops, Occupational Therapy workshops etc.
Physical exercises are performed in relation to their co-ordination, to work with them on their fine and gross motor skills, their sensory integration and their visual perception. Drama, arts and crafts, swimming, outdoor activities and pony riding are also some of the fun activities that are of a major benefit to the children.
Family outings take place once a month, to help the children integrate with other children who have the same problems and to socialise in a safe environment.
Also on the agenda would be a support group for parents regarding entitlements and educational rights and whenever possible to lobby for our children’s rights.
Anyone who would like to become a member of the new group will have to become a member of FACE
Weekly Activities of the group include;
. . . And lots, lots more!

ATTENTION ALL VOLUNTEERS AND COLLEGE GRADUATES
We would love to hear from anybody who would like to offer their services voluntarily for the teenager group and the younger children. It would give college graduates some much sought after experience and thus not only improving your curriculum vitae, but also it would be of great benefit to the children.
We would especially like to hear from Speech & Language Therapists and Occupational Therapists, Play Therapists, Arts & Crafts teachers or facilitators, Drama Teachers, Martial Arts Teachers or any secondary student who wants to give their free time to spend with the children. (Expenses can be negotiated)
Please be aware that everybody who works with FACE must be Garda vetted by the vetting officer of FACE for the safety of the children
