A.S.K., ADD, ADHD, autism, dyscalculia, dyslexia, family support, volunteering
When a child is diagnosed with autism, dyslexia, dyscalculia, or another learning challenge, a parent’s first response tends to be “how can I best help my child with this.” In Geneva, these parents have the good fortune to turn to an organization called A.S.K. – All Special Kids.
I recently heard of ASK. while attending a Community Volunteer meeting at the American International Women’s Club. ASK is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting families of children with special needs and learning differences. Children can participate in the weekly study skills club, spring and summer camps and seminars. Parents can receive support through discussion groups and seminars, as well as find help locating appropriate local educational institutions supporting their child’s disability.
The AIWC has decided to host ASK’s weekly study group at our club and are looking for volunteers to help provide study support. If you are a club member and are interested in volunteering or would like to know more information about the ASK organization, please join us February 6 when ASK’s president will be presenting the organization and answering our questions.
