Working in conjunction with Abacus Specialist Bathroom Solutions, Kate Sheehan, OT, will be delivering a seminar for professionals focusing on the importance of play whilst bathing at the Kidz to Adultz North exhibition next month.
Play, along with the basic needs of nutrition, health, shelter and education are vital to develop the potential of a child according to the United Nations.
In the UK, many children play at bath time yet it is not often a primary consideration within an OT’s recommendations during the assessment process.
This session will explore “play” as an occupation and consider how legislation and clinical reasoning can be used to support the necessity of a bath in the design process.
Abacus will be demonstrating the Gemini bath and its range of educational material and training programmes.
Its ‘double lift’ action provides safe working heights for carers and the integrated changing, drying and bathing platform eliminates many awkward transfer processes.
