We had a very busy year in 2014, particularly with various seminars held in Tokyo, Yokohama and Osaka. We were fortunate and honored to have Dr. Laura Klinger for a seminar on TEACCH, Dr. Tracy Alloway for a working memory seminar, and Dr. George McCloskey and Dr. Dawn Flanagan for a symposium on WISC-IV and V. They were all very well received by seminar attendants. Having them was indeed in line with our mission of bringing the latest knowledge and research results to physicians, nurses, therapists, and social workers in Japan,
Other conferences were on dysphagia, aphasia, higher brain dysfunction rehabilitation, and assessment and rehabilitation for children with special needs. Most of them were conducted over two days, with over one hundred to well over two hundred participants in each.
As for overseas study tours we sent a number of groups of professional people during 2014 to the US, UK, Scandinavia, Australia, and New Zealand for them to learn such fields as palliative care, hospice, welfare system, music therapy, and mental health.
Needless to say all of those programs would not have been possible without kind consideration and cooperation by the people who hosted our study groups at hospitals, hospices, schools, government agencies, etc., and we are deeply grateful to them.
By seminars and overseas programs, designed to enhance knowledge and skills of professionals who work for people with various mental and physical challenges, we will continue to exert our efforts to contribute to improving services to both children and adults with disadvantages.
