In DAI’s “A Meeting of the Minds” monthly Webinar series, we feature people who have unique perspectives on dementia and who challenge the status quo; our speakers are always highly regarded international academics, clinicians, service providers or keynote speakers.
In December, we host two celebration events, rather than having an educational speaker, and in January, our Cafe Le Brain is usually the celebration of DAI’s ‘Birthday’, although we always aim to have a Webinar in January as well.
Monthly webinars focus on a variety of topics, and provide an opportunity for people with dementia to connect with the wider community of those living with the disease or working in the area of dementia, and vice versa. To participate, you need only an Internet connection; a webcam and microphone will ensure a fuller experience.
We invite you to join us for our July 2020 “Meeting Of The Minds” Webinar”, Gait Training and Dementia, presented by Associate professor James McLoughlin, PhD
- Wednesday, July 29, 2020 (USA/CA/UK/EU)
- Thursday, July 30, 2020 (AU/NZ/JP/SGP/TWN)
Please note: this is one event, set in a number of different time zones.
About the Webinar: People with all forms of dementia can experience changes to their walking and balance. There are many factors that can contribute to these issues that can be targeted within an individualised rehabilitation program. James will discuss some of the proactive ways neurological physiotherapy can help with treatment, training and support.

In addition, James is an Associate Professor at Flinders University working part-time as a clinical Teaching Specialist.
