Other Information

Please note this conference is for families of children with Coffin-Siris Syndrome only. It is a child friendly conference and a play space is available next to the two conference rooms on the Saturday. The meet and greet is at a play centre which has soft play as well as a sensory room available.

We need to know if you are attending the meet and greet on the Friday as well as the conference on the Saturday - please book your tickets separately for each event. Please try and come along to the meet and greet if you can. It will give families a chance to meet informally before the conference. On the conference day itself the schedule is back to back booked with speakers and there won't be much opportunity to do this.
