Moving Forward with Exceptional Children

Broadcast of Knowledge Exchange for Parents of Children with Special Needs

Dear Parent or Child Caregiver,

In March of 2018, Nishnawbe Aski Nation (NAN) and Sioux Lookout First Nation Health Authority (SLFNHA) hosted “Moving Forward with Exceptional Children”, a knowledge exchange event for parents of children with special needs.  During the event, presenters from multiple organizations provided information to parents on self-care, activities and services that are available in the Sioux Lookout catchment zone.  We are pleased to announce that on Saturday December 8th, 2018 we will be broadcasting the recorded presentations on the internet from 9:00 am CST to 12:10 pm CST (noon) on Sunday December 9th.  The broadcast will be running in a continual loop in the order below.  Below is a table with estimated times each presenter will be broadcast*.
