(SPRINT Paris Action Network) was originally created by SPRINT France special-needs professionals (http://www.sprintfrance.fr). Earlier in 2014, SPAN was reborn under the wings of KidJam Association (http://www.kidjam.fr/). Founder of KidJam, Valerie Beatson, mother to a four-year-old on the autistic spectrum, felt that more support and communication was needed between parents dealing with children with developmental difficulties. And that a link from parents to professionals in the Paris community would be beneficial to all. SPAN is a bilingual network and all parents are welcome as well as all professional input. This blog has been created to share past and future events, meeting minutes, and as a vehicle for communication about special-needs informations.
