Event description

Description

Organised in partnership with Hampshire Neurological Alliance, this autumn's study day will be an opportunity for practitioners to hear from those living with communication difficulties and explore how we can better support them through greater understanding of the barriers they face and through awareness of the technological options available to support communication.

Hear from a speech and language therapist who has extensive experience of supporting people living with a range of communication difficulties as a result of other conditions. Discover the range of communication aids currently available to service users and approaches to support them.

Learn some basic makaton with a Regional Tutor and come away with top tips to support communication. Hear first hand accounts from two people living with communication difficulties and have the opportunity to ask questions.

There will be marketstalls at the event, hosted by the MND Association, Parkinson's UK, Remap and The Stroke Association, amongst others. There will be the chance to pick up resources and network. The stallholders will also take part in a Three Minutes to Change the World challenge, allowing them to innovatively showcase how their organisation changes the world for the people they support.

The day is free and is open to anyone in Hampshire who supports people with physical disabilities and neurological conditions.

Hampshire County Council staff interested in this event should book online via the internal Learning Management System as Eventbrite is for staff working in the Private and Voluntary sector only.
