The following was posted on a forum I am a member of:
“Conference on helping individuals with special needs
On October 1-3, 2010, the best and brightest involved in multi sensory stimulation research and practice will convene in Birmingham, Alabama for the International Multi Sensory Environment (Snoezelen) Symposium (www.isna2010.org) . This 8th annual event which is being held for the first time in the USA will be hosted by the Christopher Douglas Hidden Angel Foundation (www.cdhaf.org).
The conference will bring together experts from over 12 countries featuring more than 30 renowned speakers who will offer thought-provoking lectures and workshops concerning the use of Multi Sensory Environments (MSE) and sensory enrichment. For the first time a large section of the program will be devoted to the brain, its development, plasticity and the impact of the environment.
Multi Sensory Environments have been used to improve learning, health, quality of life and increased human potential in people with Autism, Alzheimer, Cerebral Palsy and many other similar conditions so this is an event not to be missed.”
I went to the ISNA2010.org site, and was amazed at what I saw. This conference looks like it will be great. I would love to attend, but the cost of just the conference is $325 for non-members. If you can afford to attend this conference, and decide to attend, please let me know. I would love to write about your experience at the conference.
