The London Children's Practice are looking for volunteers to help them during their activity days running from Monday 22nd October– Friday 26th October, 2018 in their clinic at 18 Wimpole Street. The activity days involve supporting children who have speech  and language as well as sensory and motor difficulties to engage in gross motor, sensory, language development, and attention and listening activities. The children who attend have a range of difficulties such as ASD, behavioural difficulties, and learning difficulties.
