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 some of our Specialist Talks via online webinar. These will take place via the Zoom app.

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.

“Thank you for organising this great workshop – I found it very useful and it was also comforting to be amongst people in similar situations as it can feel quite isolating at times. I could have happily stayed all day.”
