The TSA Big Day 2018 will take place on Saturday 10 November at Sheffield Hallam University, S1 4RF, between 8.30am and 5pm.
The day will have a full agenda of presentations and workshops and opportunities to meet with the TS community. And this time around, inspired by the TS Alliance’s world conference, the event will be divided into two tracks – Children and Young People, and Adults – to make it easier for you to navigate.
Our keynote presentation will be on epilepsy, given by Consultant Paediatric Neurologist Dr Sam Amin, and experts from charity partners will run workshops on sleep and challenging behaviours. The day will also include the TSA Annual General Meeting, an update on the TSA's work from our Chair and Chief Executive, and a round-up on the research the TSA is driving from our Head of Research Strategy Dr Chris Kingswood. Once again, you will have the opportunity to book one-to-one sessions with clinicians and researchers. Information on how to book these sessions will be provided at a later date.
