“You have to provide an irresistible invitation to share attention and communication…!”.
And then she held the Conference spellbound for an hour.
Gina Davies. Where? At the Medica Conference of a few years ago in Glasgow. Conference delegates (and the Chair) were then left enthralled by a powerful and practical presentation from Gina, at yet another excellent Conference. With the help of a singing monkey (don’t ask…), Gina’s presentation was a highlight in what turned out to be a wonderful conference. She described how shared attention was taught in her Centre; how those ‘irresistible invitations’ were made and how communication was made ‘worth the effort’ for young people with Autism. It had a big impact on me then and I have since quoted her on numerous occasions. See www.ginadavies.co.uk
And now Gina is returning in November at the Medica cpd November conference on Autism and also presenting a half day workshop! Read about that here.
This is not to be missed. These are the Conferences that make a difference.
