Our 2018 conference is aimed at providing parents/carers and practitioners with a greater understanding of the impact of child to parent violence and aggression on the child/young person and their parents/carers, and provides examples of different strategies and approaches to help manage this.
Our speaker will be Yvonne Newbold, a writer, speaker and trainer who is also the mother to three children, including Toby who is multiply disabled with profound learning disabilities. She is passionate about doing whatever it takes to make things better for children and adults who have a neurodevelopmental condition or disability, as well as for their families.
