If you’ve ever been curious to learn more about various disabilities, now’s your chance.
The Quebec Special Needs Association (formerly the Special Needs Planning Workshop) will be hosting the All Abilities Expo, Quebec’s largest exhibition for people with special needs, on Oct. 19.
Up to 100 sponsors will be on hand at the not-for-profit organization’s event to provide a range of information about physical, cognitive and age-related disabilities. The schedule features activities such as adaptive sports workshops, as well as a musical performance by Steven Abadi and a dance performance by the I Can Dream theatre troupe.
Since its launch in 2011, the Quebec Special Needs Association has worked to help families, healthcare professionals and caregivers better cope.
The All Abilities Expo will take place on Oct. 19 at the Stade Uniprix between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. It is free and open to the public.
