Specialist Talks

SNAP organises a unique and diverse calendar of specialist talks and events for parents and professionals. These include large presentations, workshops aimed at parents of children with particular difficulties or to help with a specific issue, and parent courses of more than one session, focusing on a specific diagnosis or issue.

SNAP is pleased to offer the opportunity to access our Specialist Talks via online webinar. These will take place via the Zoom app. We are thrilled to be able to announce we have secured funding from NHS Charities Together and Mid and South Essex Hospitals Charity which will enable us to offer them FREE for families for a limited time. A nominal charge for Professionals to attend still applies. 

During Zoom webinars you will be able to see and hear the speaker but you will not be seen or heard. Questions can be submitted prior to and during the event.

(download Zoom to your computer from https://zoom.us/download or to your device via the App Store or Google Play).
