CLOSOMAT WEBINAR: Bathroom design to support sensory needs
June 18 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Taking place on the 18th of June at 11am, Closomat’s ‘Bathroom design to support sensory needs’ CPD-accredited webinar focuses on bathroom design to support adults and children with sensory needs.
The session is aimed at occupational therapists and adaptation teams.
Presented by Occupational Therapist Kate Sheehan, Director of The OT Service and former chair of the Royal College of Occupational Therapist’s (RCOT) Specialist Section on Housing, the webinar will cover how to ensure adaptations efficiently manage a client’s lifetime need, whilst balancing available resources and Disabled Facilities Grant (DFG) budget.
The learning session will also cover:
- Occupations that clients engage in within the bathroom environment
- The impact of the environment on engagement, with a focus on those with sensory needs
- A specific focus on child developmental theory to consider tasks such as toileting and bathing
- How routines, equipment and minor and major adaptations can be used to maximise engagement in personal care, play, sleep and relationships through the transition into adulthood
