TRANSITIONING TOWARDS INDEPENDENCE RESOURCE FAIR IS APRIL 12 AT EMSB

Repercussion Theatre

MONTREAL, MARCH 18, 2012 - John Grant and Paul VI High Schools, in collaboration with the English Montreal School Board (EMSB) and Inspirations Newspaper, are hosting their biggest special needs resource fair yet. It will take place at the EMSB Administration building (6000 Fielding Avenue) in NDG on Thursday, April 12 (7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.)

John Grant and Paul VI cater to students with special needs. Their mandate is to encourage personal and academic growth for all learners, regardless of the challenges they face.

The Transitioning Towards Independence Resource Fair will bring together a variety of resources for parents, family members, teachers and caregivers of students of all ages with learning difficulties and/or special needs. Making resources available under one roof will enable parents/guardians and teachers to make better informed life decisions for their special needs child or student.

Exhibitors representing all aspects of special needs will be on hand to exchange information, including social services, educational services, health-related services, government services, transportation, financial assistance, respite care, housing, employment, extra-curricular activities, human rights and community support. Under the direction of Roland Desloges, principal of John Grant and Paul VI High Schools, this evening promises to provide invaluable information to parents and family members, teachers and caregivers of students of all ages with special needs.
