ICPS was honoured to be asked asked by the organisers of the 2014 EACD Conference held in Newcastle UK to host one of the pre-conference Forums. ICPS approached the Percy Hedley School Newcastle whose parents agreed to participate in the event. The parents themselves chose the three subjects to he discussed. Each session was introduced by a parent and a professional speaker and followed by a discussion. ICPS is grateful to the Percy Hedley School, in particular Lynn Watson and Anne Coates, for their support without which this Forum would not have taken place.
