Special Education Professionals (SEP) is pleased organise another edition of the dance for youth with special needs from ages 13years and above, at the Sarakasi Dome, in Ngara.
The dance party will take place on Friday 23rd May 2014, starting from 2.00 p.m. to 5.00 p.m. Note that we have moved the Dance to a Friday to allow schools to organise for this event as a school outing.
The dance for youth is a special fun event for the teenagers and adolescents to get together and have some fun! Youth from different schools and centres get an opportunity to meet and socialise with each other. It will be a friendly afternoon of music, dance, fun and entertainment.
Entertainment on the day will be provided by “All Stars DJ’S” as well as a team from the well acclaimed Sarakasi Dancers.
Students in schools need to be accompanied by a teacher/guardian to chaperone them during the party. The dance party is free of charge, however participants are encouraged to carry some pocket money for purchasing soft drinks.
Please consider yourself specially invited to participate in this event. Attached please find a poster invitation for the day.
We look forward to seeing you at the dance party!
SEP held a disability awareness event at Shekainah Glory Sanctuary in Kahawa West.
The event was a joint collaboration between Special Education Professionals and several other organizations working in special needs including Autism Awareness Kenya, Dyslexia Kenya, Cerebral Palsy Society of Kenya, and Kenya Association for the Welfare of people with Epilepsy (KAWE).
The event was a great opportunity to not only open up the dialogue around disability and fight the stigma that unfortunately surrounds many differently labeled people through talks and info stalls, but was also a chance for parents to voice their concerns and talk with professionals coming from different backgrounds and dealing with a wide sphere of disabilities, who were able to direct them to appropriate assessment centers and recommend intervention programs for their children.
A talk for teachers working with special children in schools located in that area was also held. The talk gave strategies for working with children with special needs in the classroom. The teachers were able to voice their concerns and talk to various other professionals who were present.
SEP is very greatful to Shekainah Glory Sanctuary who hosted the event and also provided all the tables and chairs.
