Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Network Conference, London

Saturday 15th September 2018

10am–4.30pm

The National Gallery, Sainsbury Wing Conference Room 1, London

£20 (includes lunch and refreshments)

This conference explores creative approaches to interpreting museums, galleries, and heritage sites for visitors with special educational needs and disabilities.

The keynote speech is given by Gina Davies, founder of the Gina Davies Autism Centre and pioneer of the Attention Autism programme. Gina is an accomplished conference speaker and highly acclaimed practitioner in autism, turning her skill as a speech and language therapist and passion for communication into practical interventions for both parents and professionals.

Throughout the day, delegates have the opportunity to hear case studies from a range of institutions and experts, and to participate in two practical and interactive workshops. Each workshop has a different creative focus and considers different approaches, techniques, and resources that can be used in their own settings.
