A behavioural therapist and teacher in the Takasaki University of Health and Welfare (Japan), Ryo Takahashi, will address parents and professionals dealing with special children and give them tips on how to overcome behavioural problems.

The occupational therapists from Netherlands -- Ellis Goede and Irma Rusche -- will also share their experiences on how special children can behave normally.
