Announcing our new online workshops for Bild Members

We’re delighted to announce a new programme of Bild Member online events, which offer exclusive learning opportunities with national and international experts.

There will be a range of topics covered and the first series will focus on positive behaviour support. They will take place each month for six months, starting with the first event on 25 November 2020.

We are inviting international figures to present on an important and relevant issue in PBS, then opening up a conversation with our members.

This will be a great opportunity to focus on similarities and differences in the implementation of PBS across cultures, countries and populations and will provide learning opportunities for everyone.

Our first event on 25 November 2020 will take place from 12pm until 2pm (GMT), and will also include our Annual General Meeting (AGM).

We will be hearing from Tom Tutton from Aspect Australia, who will speak on the topic of inclusion, specifically ‘listening to autistic people helps to get PBS right.’
