Specialist therapy for children will be the subject of a talk at a brain injury networking event in Shrewsbury in October.

The forum is the latest in a series of events hosted by Lanyon Bowdler Solicitors offering the opportunity for professionals working in the field of brain injury and other interested parties to come together, exchange views and share their expertise.

It will be held at Headway Shropshire, Holsworth Park, Oxon Business Park, on Thursday, October 13th between 9.30 and 11.30am and anyone interested in attending is being encouraged to book now as places are limited.

The main guest speaker will be Sarah Brew, a clinical specialist physiotherapist at The Movement Centre in Oswestry, who will be giving a presentation about Targeted Training Therapy and the important work the charity does to help children from all over the country.

The Movement Centre is giving children the chance to gain more control of their movement and reach their full potential through Targeted Training therapy, the only therapy of its kind in the world.

The treatment has been helping to transform the range of movement of children with cerebral palsy and other disabilities affecting their mobility for more than 25 years.

A second guest speaker, from Headway Shropshire, will give a short presentation which will include some case studies and a talk on the work they are currently doing. There will also be an opportunity for those attending the forum to tour the Headway facilities.

Dawn Humphries, head of Lanyon Bowdler’s personal injury team, said: “These events are always well attended and provide an interesting forum for discussion about the issues facing those who have suffered a brain injury.

“We hold these networking events regularly at various venues and invite a variety of specialists along to give short presentations as guest speakers. The work of The Movement Centre at Oswestry is unique, so it will be interesting to hear Sarah’s talk about Targeted Training Therapy which has changed the lives of so many children and their families.

“I would like to thank Headway Shropshire for hosting the forum – another local organisation which is doing so much to improve life after brain injury.

“The forum is free to attend and light refreshments will be available but anyone wanting to come along must please book by Friday, October 7 – places are limited so it’s important to book early to avoid disappointment.

“Brain injury is a particularly traumatic area of personal injury or medical negligence cases. The effects of this type of injury often result in the most profound changes to the lives of victims, family and friends.”
