Important information about the 16th International Symposium of ISNA-Snoezelen professional e.V.:

We had put a lot of thought and effort into preparing an interesting symposium for you covering a number of current topics. The surroundings of the monastery Maria Bildhausen lent themselves perfectly to the topic of “nature”. Our experts had thought carefully about how to use the experiences and impressions one gets from a walk through beautiful surroundings and implement them in a Snoezelen room prepared to address different target groups. Unfortunately, registrations numbers were low, therefore we have decided at the last meeting to cancel the symposium.

Our ideas will feed into our training programme for 2019. New courses will be published on the website in the middle of October 2018. We have made sure the modules to obtain the “Internationally recognised additional Qualification Snoezelen” are in order to ensure that the training course can be completed within two years (cf. Snoezelen-Professional education).


A special highlight 2019 will be a trip to the Netherlands, to “the cradle of Snoezelen”.

from the 28th to the 31st March 2019
to the Centre De Hartenberg near Ede

As part of the trip we will visit a number of facilities for people with disabilities such as the “Manege zonder Drempels”; a biological farm that supports the integration of people with disabilities; a centre for senior citizens. Ad Verheul has organised luxurious, affordable bungalows in a holiday park (€ 78,- per person for 3 nights without breakfast) which need to be booked as soon as possible. Our programme will be published by the middle of October 2018 and send automatically to the registered people.

For people who are ISNA members to the present day, coach trips to the different facilities in the Netherlands will be free.
In addition to that they will also receive a free DVD-Set Snoezelen and a DVD about the history and activities at De Hartenberg from Ad Verheul. The beautiful accommodation we have picked is affordable but must be booked by the end of October.

The trip can be recognised as an educational trip.
