TRANSITIONING TOWARDS INDEPENDENCE RESOURCE FAIR IS APRIL 11 AT ST. PIUS X ADULT EDUCATION CENTRE

MONTREAL, MARCH 28, 2013 -  John Grant and L.I.N.K.S. 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 St. Pius X Adult Education Centre (9955 Papineau Avenue) in Montreal on Thursday, April 11 (3 p.m. to 9 p.m.)

John Grant and L.I.N.K.S. 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 James Fequet, principal of John Grant and L.I.N.K.S. High Schools, this event promises to provide invaluable information to parents and family members, teachers and caregivers of students of all ages with special needs.
