Family fun day for children with disabilities
June 30, 2010
A magician will be on hand to entertain visitors to the Children with Additional Needs (CAN) family fun and information day.
All families with children who have additional needs or disabilities are invited to join in the fun at Highwood Primary School in Woodley on Saturday, July 3.
From 11am to 3.30pm there will be henna painting, farm animals, a model railway and competitions for families to enjoy.
Lucy Skye, Wokingham Borough Council’s information and participation officer for children with additional needs, said: “The main purpose of the CAN fun day is to bring services, professional, charity and parent run, under one roof, for one day, to show families with a child with additional needs what is available to them.”
Visitors will have the opportunity to learn about services which are available in the Wokingham area and there will also be information stands from local groups including local autism, carers support and learning disability and physical disability charities.
The fun day is organised by Wokingham Borough Council’s children’s services and local voluntary sector organisations including Crossroads, Peapods and Wokingham District Mencap.
