During the session

We will keep participants muted whilst we are presenting. This avoids distracting our speakers and also reduces sensory stimulation which is important for some people. However, if you wish to ask a question you can do this by adding it in the chat box. Please feel free to turn your camera on and off as you need to. If you need it off the whole time, that is totally fine.

If you need a break at any time during the session then please leave the meeting and re-join again when you feel ready.

The webinar will be recorded and will be available after the session.
