Cerebral Palsy Scotland Conference 2018

The fifth annual Cerebral Palsy Scotland Conference and Exhibition was a great success, bringing together around 200 delegates and 40 exhibitors.

Delegates heard from a diverse range of speakers, including Richard Davenport, Chair of the National Advisory Committee for Neurological Conditions and Dr Jenny Preston MBE, Clinical Lead for Neurological Rehabilitation in NHS Ayrshire & Arran.

Workshops on the day covered topics including mental health and CP, making the transition from children’s to adult services, self-directed support, postural care, Bobath therapy, Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) and Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC).

Highlights from the day were captured in this short film, put together by conference contributor and vlogger Jenny Trott.
