On April 22nd 2017, SENIA Singapore held its second successful full day conference at the Stamford American International School.

The theme of the day was ‘Cultivating Collective Responsibility’. Over one hundred attendees were present from a variety of local and international institutions. The day started with a keynote address from Dr Eric Sands about creating inclusive cultures. Following this was two rounds of workshops, followed by panel discussions in the afternoon. The sessions were presented from a wide variety of people representing various centres and schools in Singapore and covered a range of relevant, pertinent topics. At the completion of the day, SENIA Singapore presented its inaugural Advocacy Award to Dr Roby Marcou. Dr Marcou has been actively involved in supporting students with special educational needs in Asia for many years. Stamford American International School hosted the event and the facilities and staff there enabled the attendees to have an enjoyable, smoothly run day. We would like to thank everyone for making the day a success and we look forward to seeing you at our next event!
