School Entry Events

published 21 Jan 2019 by upaboutdown in Latest News category with 0 comments

The School Entry events are for families who have children with special needs who are wanting to learn more about the transition process for entering school. This event has been helpful for families in the past who are not sure yet whether they want their child to start school. Or they are wanting to register their child, but are unsure of the process and the transition.

The School Entry event is being held in two locations and at different times. It will be held in Kingsville at ACCESS on Tues. Feb. 5 from 9:30-11:30am, and in Windsor at Drouillard Place on Thurs. Feb. 7 from 6:30-8:30pm. Families who attend will receive a School Entry Booklet written and created by families, as well as an information package. They will also have time for asking questions and networking.

Hi Families,

UAD has been offered a wonderful opportunity to partner with Nikki Vos this summer, for photoshoots and more.

She is a first year photography student at Lambton College. She currently runs a small hobby photography business that focuses on providing affordable, quality photos to all families and individuals.

This summer, Nikki is hoping to work on a two part personal photography story project, The T-21 Project, ‘21. She wrote, “As someone who has been blessed with a family member with Down syndrome, the goal of the project is to highlight and share the stories of Ontario families who have also been blessed with a family member with Down syndrome. This project will provide families with an affordable way to represent their individuality and uniqueness.”

From Nikki:
“The first part of the project will include family or individual mini photoshoots, as well as a questionnaire form prior to the shoot. Part of the proceeds from the photoshoot will be donated back to your association. The second part will include putting together a photo story book that shares a variety of stories and photos from the families who have participated in the photoshoots. Families will be given the option to have their stories included, if desired, and UAD the WEDSA will be given the opportunity to use the books as a fundraiser.”

“I absolutely love Jackson Park, and think it would be perfect for this project! I’ve created an advertisement poster with the link for participant signup:

Thank you,

Nikki
