BC Special Education Association Crosscurrents Conference
We had a great time exhibiting and talking about autism with a ton of really great companies at the 2015 Crosscurrents conference in Vancouver this past weekend. Special Education Teachers and educators came from all over the province to take part in the conference and hear what keynote speaker Richard Guare had to say!
We were so pleased with the number of teachers who came by to check out Snug Vest, most of whom had tales to tell about weighted vests & animals in their classrooms. They were all excited to learn about Snug Vest and immediately understood it's applications. We also had a few teachers come by and tell us that they have Snug Vests in their schools, and it was great to hear how they are working for students. We were especially happy to hear about high school students who wear Snug Vest and don't stand out.
Needless to say we were ecstatic when we found out one of the presenters was talking about sensory strategies in the classroom and how important sensory integration is. She even came by our booth and took a picture of Snug Vest to be in the presentation!
Finally, we were really happy to be exhibiting with Variety the Children's Charity, a BC charity that supports children with special needs. They were promoting their individual grant program which has been used by quite a few families to purchase a Snug Vest! Odin books was also present, selling a ton of books and educational resources about anxiety, trauma, autism, adhd and many other mental health resources.
Thanks to everyone who came by our booth, and if you would like to check out pictures from the conference, check out our facebook photo album here.
