The workshop finishes by concluding remarks from one of the speakers
- An electronic multimedia projector to project on the screen from the speaker’s laptop is a must for the workshop.
- A classroom setting is recommended, with sisters on one side of the hall and brothers in the other side. A Mosque prayer hall is not suitable for this function. Seats are a must, and tables are preferred. Light control is required to ensure better viewing.
- For the full benefit, both parents are advised to attend the whole program; as such a baby-sitting program is very much recommended. It should include activities such as coloring, games, story telling, a light meal, etc.
- The time allocated for presentations & workshops can not be shortened.
- The two presentations complement each other, thus both parents should attend both presentations.
