Date: Wednesday 25th November, 2015
Time: 11:45am – 12.15pm
Location: Showcase Theatre, OT Show, NEC – Birmingham
Seminar Title: ‘Bathing – the right to play’
Speaker: Kate Sheehan, Occupational Therapist – in association with Abacus Healthcare

A recognised leader in specialist bathing for over 25 years, Abacus Healthcare works closely with care providers, therapists and families to ensure children with disabilities can bathe in comfort, dignity and safety. Read more….
