Unique event in Geneva: a special needs education fair
Saturday October 6th 2012 Crown Plaza Hotel, Geneva
9:30am – 3pm
During the past decade both international and local schools in Geneva have had to cope with an ever increasing number of children with special needs.
Parents and teachers are often finding themselves at a loss and may not know who to turn to or what services are available.
ASK – All Special Kids, a non-profit voluntary organisation that helps parents of children with special educational needs or learning difficulties is here to provide support and to fill this gap.
ASK encourages collaboration between parents, educators and specialists and makes sure people get the information they need, when they need it and thus help children with special needs to play an inclusive role in our society.
On the 6th of October 2012 ASK will be hosting a conference by experts in their field who will explain how the local system provides support for children who are identified as having special needs at any period of their school life including pre-school.
Stands with information on further resources and other parent support organisations will be present. With plans to repeat the event next year and across Switzerland, ASK intends this to become an annual community event and resource fair for both the international and the local communities.
On the 7th November 2012, 100 Women in Hedge Funds will be hosting a fundraising Gala dinner at Grand Kempinski Hotel in Geneva in honour of ASK – All Special Kids. This is indeed a key time for ASK, which will celebrate its 10th anniversary in March 2013.
