  • Organised by Intellectual Disability

Technological developments are the bedrock of the future of healthcare. One of the main challenges that technology face is to be inclusive of the needs of a diverse population, particularly those with developmental conditions.

It is important that technology is able to assimilate the complex health needs that are present in groups with neurodevelopmental challenges. 

Join this webinar to explore four different technologies, which in their own way have been templar to meet the need and challenges of this complex, diverse and vulnerable population.

During this seminar, you'll be able to:

  • Understand what challenges exist for technologies to develop in this cohort
  • Use four successful examples of developing technology to outline where solutions can be found
  • Discuss using examples of how to measure and embed technological interventions safely in clinical pathways focused on developmental issues
  • Be inspired to understand and implement technological change

A CPD certificate with 3 CPD credits will be issued to those joining the webinar live as well as those who watch the recording afterwards. Certificates will be issued 7 days after the webinar to those who watch it live and after 30 days for those that watch the recording.

Registration for this webinar will close 2 hours prior to the start time. You will receive the webinar link 2 hours before the meeting. Late registrations will not be accepted.
