The Safespaces team, represented by Amanda and Saty, were on hand to meet, demonstrate and discuss the ways in which Safespaces can improve and enrich the lives of those living with and working with children and young people with autism and challenging behaviours. The OTAC event – the eighth of its kind – offered those in the occupational therapy field a day packed with the latest equipment and adaptation guidance.
Giving a more in-depth insight to the OT audience, Amanda spoke at a break-out session on the improvements Safespaces can offer for sensory processing and sleep disorders brought on by challenging behaviours. The seminar, attendance at which was booked in advance, needed additional seating as a packed room listened and engaged with Amanda, citing examples where Safespaces had made a remarkable difference to children and their families in their homes, in respite care and on holiday.
Providing important professional development benefits to the attendees, each received a certificate of attendance and technical product literature from the Safespaces team.
The next OTAC event takes place in Chester in February 2018 and Safespaces will once again have a seminar presence and will be available throughout the day on Stand O25 and O26.
