Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 09, 2012
Special Learning, Inc., the leading global provider of mobile technology applications and educational resources for the autism community, announced today that it will exhibit at the Geneva Centre for Autism International Symposium scheduled for October 24 through 26, 2012, at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto, Canada.
Special Learning will host an exhibit at the conference in booths 36, 37 and 38. As a global provider of mobile applications and educational resources, the company serves the needs of parents, providers and educators working with individuals with ASD around the world. As it continues to expand its global reach, Special Learning is in the process of building partnerships with several educational institutions throughout the Toronto metro area.
Participating in the conference allows Special Learning the opportunity to build upon its reputation as an international provider of autism resources and Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) solutions. The web-based company leverages the latest mobile technology developments to create and deliver products and services that can be accessed globally.
“Our presence at the Geneva Center for Autism International Symposium marks our commitment to providing the latest technology applications and educational resources for parents and care givers providing treatment to those affected by autism,” said Karen Chung, founder and CEO of Special Learning. “In addition, it allows us to connect with the autism community in Canada and interact with the world’s foremost ASD thought leaders to ensure those we serve that we are committed to their needs wherever they are in the world.”
Additionally, Special Learning will use the symposium to launch a new initiative designed to “give back” to its school clients. In recognition of the efforts that school faculty and administrators make in providing the greatest level of education to students with ASD and other developmental disabilities, despite the ongoing budget cuts that get in the way, Special Learning will donate 10 percent of purchases made by qualified schools on select Special Learning products.
“Special Learning receives a great deal of feedback and support for its products from educators, who seek highly effective tools to teach their students with ASD and other developmental disabilities,” said Chung. “Through our give back program, we believe we’re able to further support and show our commitment to these educational entities and their students.”
The Geneva Centre for Autism International Symposium is considered to be one of the premiere events for those who care for or treat individuals with ASD and brings together the world’s foremost thought leaders, clinicians and researchers on the subject. The conference features three days of educational sessions including topics such as autism treatment, cutting-edge research and the effect genetics plays in the condition, the science of teaching social skills, environmental issues and autism, supporting behavior change and even how to navigate work while dealing with ASD. Participants are afforded opportunities to learn through lectures, discussions and hands-on sessions, and connect with colleagues in the field.
As an ongoing host to this international conference since 1986, the Geneva Centre for Autism unites professionals, educators, parents and researchers from around the world, who are focused on the leading research and clinical practices in the field of autism.
