Newcastle Regional Event for Professionals

Professionals Event
Fantastic opportunity to learn more about this rare and complex disorder in an informal session where you have lots of opportunities to ask questions. With over 30 years’ experience, Rett UK is the only UK charity providing professional family support services and training for anyone involved in supporting someone with Rett syndrome.
The Rett UK Family Support Team with support from parent carers, will be giving a general information session about Rett syndrome. There will also be a session about Communication & Education, by Callie Ward & Abigail Davison-Hoult.
The afternoon will be of interest to school teachers, teaching assistants, speech and language therapists, physiotherapists and occupational therapists, care providers, service managers, support workers and personal assistants.
You are also very much encouraged to join us and our families again on the Saturday for further presentations from Rett syndrome specialists on research, communication & education, breathing and sleep problems. We also have 1:1 sessions for families on music therapy, physiotherapy and eye-gaze equipment.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if there are particular topics you would like covered on the Friday afternoon and we will adapt the sessions accordingly. Please feel free to share this information with colleagues.
