How to record:

Videoing TACPAC sessions will help you to get the most out of your observations. Being able to watch repeatedly will enable you to:

  • Spot any missed wow moments,
  • Scrutinise the practise of the Givers,
  • Give more detailed breakdown of progress made and future targets,
  • Gain a clearer picture of your Receivers’ sensory impairment needs,
  • Avoids interrupting the session to make notes.

If you chose to make written observation notes this is a judgement that depends on the needs of the Receiver. You might choose to do this during the session, after each activity, at the end of the session or as soon as possible after a session. If you are making written records during a session have Post -it notes or your recording sheet readily to hand and develop a way of being able to capture your observations as quickly as possible between activities so that the overall TACPAC session is not interrupted or delayed for too long. Try not to lose contact with your Receiver or let your recording detract from being in the TACPAC zone.

Don’t forget to keep a record of the Body Pattern for each activity for every Receiver. Body Pattern record sheets are provided when you attend the TACPAC Essential training.

Remember we recommend at least 6 months on each Set. Make the most of this amount of time by making your observations worthwhile, next step target driven and informative.
