Event: The Salvesen Lecture 2019

Salvesen Mindroom Research Centre and Salvesen Mindroom Centre are partners, working together in areas of research and outreach, to improve the lives of children, young people and families living with learning difficulties.

In this, Sue Fletcher-Watson, Director of the Research Centre, and Christine Carlin, Chief Executive of the Salvesen Mindroom Centre, will showcase the practices and methods the partnership uses to make sure research is carried out with and for, not done to, our participants.

The speakers will explain how strong research will enhance their outreach support for children, young people and families, empowering them in their journeys. They will also explain how this amazing partnership of research and outreach offers positive approaches for professionals in their roles supporting those with learning difficulties.

Accessibility measures at the event will include BSL interpretation and use of autism-enabling elements such as ‘flapplause’. The building is wheelchair accessible and includes ground floor, accessible facilities.
