Barriers to Breakthroughs: the positive impact of our collaborative research for children with complex needs and their families.

About this event

Cerebra’s in-person Annual Research Conference is back. This one-day conference will host talks from some world class academics who are undertaking research funded by Cerebra. Researchers from a range of disciplines (Applied Psychology, Foetal Medicine, Product Design and Law), will talk about their work and how their research and innovation activities are achieving real world impact to improve outcomes for children with complex needs and their families.

This conference is aimed at parents, carers and professionals or anyone interested in learning about recent research and initiatives to reduce the societal inequalities and promote the health and wellbeing of this group of children and families.

Conference topics/speakers include:

• Interventions – research to improve the lives of individuals with learning disabilities and/or severe or complex needs and their families (Professor Richard Hastings, University of Warwick, Dr Caroline Richards, Dr Jane Waite, Cerebra Network for Neurodevelopmental Disorders)

• Bright ideas for brilliant kids - innovative, bespoke products to help disabled children discover and engage with the world around them (Dr Ross Head, Cerebra Innovation Centre)

• Pregnancy – identifying interventions to help prevent and/or minimise childhood disability (Dr Eduard Gratacos, University of Barcelona, Mr Nigel Simpson, University of Leeds)

• Legal entitlements – helping families to access their legal rights (Professor Luke Clements, University of Leeds School of Law)

There will be opportunities for delegates to ask questions of the speakers about their research and to network.
