Hydrocephalus Education Seminar

Hydrocephalus Education Seminar

Teaching professionals and members of the Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) service are invited to a seminar about the effects of hydrocephalus – a condition caused by an accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid in the brain – on children’s learning and behaviour.

The condition, which affects one to two out of every thousand newborns, can cause impairments in children such as learning and physical disabilities. However the severity can differ considerably and some children can be of average or above average intelligence. It can also be acquired after birth as a result of head traumas or meningitis.

The seminar, organised by the charity Shine Shine, in collaboration with the hydrocephalus medical teams at Sheffield Children’s Hospital, will take place at the Sheffield offices of Irwin Mitchell, Millsands, Sheffield S3 on Wednesday October 17th from 4.30-6.30pm.

It will include advice on classroom strategies and on maximising the potential of children with hydrocephalus. View flyer and View agenda

Places are limited so early booking is advised. You can email events@shinecharity.org.uk or telephone 01733 555988 to book a place.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.
