CE in forthcoming awareness day for educationalists

In the recent posting on Cerebra's Cardiff conference it was suggested that the vacuum left by Scope's shift of focus to 'rights' is increasingly filled now by emerging charities. One of these is Cerebra. Another is Hemihelp.

Among its early activities, early next year Hemihelp is running a one-day awareness event:

Conference for education professionals
Birmingham and Midland Institute
£120 (non-members), £90 (members of Hemihelp)
Location not yet announced

All education professionals working with children with hemiplegia are welcome at this conference. It will be particularly relevant to SENCOs, special needs advisers and educational psychologists. Themes will include dealing with emotional and behavioural problems, literacy, technology and Conductive Education.

Seven topics will be covered over the course of the day,.including the following:

Conductive Education – improving movement
Wendy Baker, Director of Children's Services
Foundation for Conductive Education
