We were contacted by the Northern Thailand Association for the Handicapped to help coordinate their Handicapped Day, in which a parade was part of the events. Each of the organizations did a short presentation. The meeting was held in the main public area in the center of Chiang Mai and presided over by the Governor.
We also recently participated in an eleven-day training seminar and workshop for teaching children with learning disabilities. There were only 40 people invited to the workshop, the others being heads of departments at large universities or directors of schools for the handicapped, or other leading experts. The seminar focused on integrating children with learning disabilities with normal children and techniques on teaching mathematics to children with learning disabilities.
Since the seminar, we have been receiving further training at the Northern Child Development Center on how to help hyperactive and autistic children. We continue to supply material for hospitals, orphanages and AIDS hospices. We now supply eight centers in the Chiang Mai area.
