Uwe Maurer the president of the Taiwan Sunshine Foundation led a workshop on learning support within the framework of the Taiwan Education System.  Natasha Kanapathy, a Speech and Language Pathologist, led a session on the understanding the role of an SLP as well as “red flags” for children who might need help.  Freddie Wagner, the learning specialist, at Morrison Academy, led a workshop on Brain Architecture and Understanding the impact of A.D.H.D and Learning.

Those in attendance came from all over the island, but the highest percentage of attendees came from Taipei in the capital, traveling to attend the conference.  Because of the interest, the workshops were repeated for a second conference in Taipei in early May.  The event highlighted a need for a connecting organization and networking opportunities for educators, parents and specialist.
