Here are some suggested organisations that offer expert advice on SN.
Floortime (PLAY project) workshop - London 5 Oct(5 Posts)
I saw this workshop advertised for 5 October in London and thought others might be interested? The PLAY project do training on Floortime in USA.
see reachingautism.org/pdffiles/play_conferenceflyer.pdf or link from PLAY project website
Also have ongoing workshops with local Floortime therapist but unfortunately we don't live near enough to go to those, but might make a trek to see the PLAY project guy. She doesn't seem to be on Greenspan's list of qualified DIR therapists though. Wish I could send all of DS's nursery carers on the 2 day professionals workshop!
I am also interested in floortime training as I missed the one in May.
Thanks for posting this!
Whose the local one? One of the UK ones has a married/maiden name confusion which confused me for a long time! (Doesn't take much).
I would be interested in these but I cant find any information on the website about how much they cost. Does anyone know?
Sorry try this link the workshop is in Tower Hamlets in London.
If you click the pdf about Dr Solomon of Play Project the details come up.
The ongoing sessions are run by Sibylle Janert who says she is PLAY project trained, again in conjunction with Tower Hamlets LEA it seems.
I've posted info from the flyer
Its free if you live in Tower Hamlets or £20 if not (parents only go the first day the other days are for professionals)
Its all on the reachingautism website under find out more + training:
