Bristol Study Day 2018
Moving On and Moving Up
Pupils with an ABI moving to a new setting, whether new school or new class, need additional considerations. Do you know how to welcome them and set out learning tasks so that they can make the most of the opportunities they are given?
Our aim is that professionals and advisers, parents and carers, in fact anyone who is involved in the education of young people with a neurological difficulty, will leave our special day feeling more equipped to welcome such young people and know where to turn for help.
Our 2018 conference will take place at The Vassall Centre, Fishponds Bristol BS16 2QQ.on Thursday July 12
The conference is aimed at the whole range of school-associated professionals, including teachers, head-teachers, SENCOs, TAs therapists and school nurses, as well as educational psychologists and others from local authorities involved in supporting those with SEN.
We are especially pleased to welcome representatives from schools who know they will be having a new pupil with ABI joining them in September, as well as teachers who will be welcoming a pupil with ABI to their class for the first time.
Talks will cover the medical and psychological implications of ABI, teaching and learning issues and meeting classroom challenges. Our speakers will cover a wide range of experience working with young people with an ABI
The day will be interactive with workshop type activities as well as speakers, a panel of experts to answer your questions networking opportunities and advice from those who currently teacher youngsters with an ABI.
