Ask has provided a resource list that you can read below:
We would like to thank all of you for joining us last night for the screening of The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia. We hope you enjoyed the evening and left feeling a bit more inspired about the future of children with learning differences. More importantly, we hope you made some connections with others who may be in similar situations.
All Special Kids (ASK) hopes to build a strong community and network of parents, students, teachers and providers in the Zurich community who are interested in celebrating the strengths and A-bilities of those who learn differently.
