New information for Canadian Special Need Children

Are you looking for ongoing news about special needs children in Canada? Then subscribe to this blog. We'll keep you informed of general news for Canadian special need children as well as changes at site updates.

Today is the Day! - New name: SpecialNeedsCanada.com

Today, 1 June 2018, we will be making the change to a new domain name: SpecialNeedsCanada.com

The content will switch over to the new name, however, it may take up to 24 hours or so for the full changes to be in effect... Meanwhile, the site may not be available during the change.

If you've subscribed to our RSS feed, be sure to visit us after tomorrow to get the new RSS feed address.

As of right now, the new feed address should be: https://www.specialneedscanada.com/specialneedsCanada.xml

If there is a change, we'll let you know via newsletter as well.

With the name change, you'll also see a new more modern design, and it will be a responsive template - just meaning that it will adapt to the screen size of whatever device you may be using.

This is just the first step in a complete review and update of information and products that we'll providing at SpecialNeedsCanada.com

If there is anything that you'd like to see as we move forward, or you would like to contribute, please let me know.

Stay tuned!

New site name coming... SpecialNeedsCanada.com

This site will be freshened up and improved over the next few months, and the biggest change will be a new name!

Over the next few days, the site will be renamed: SpecialNeedsCanada.com

The shorter name will not only be easier to remember, it reflects a planned expansion in the information we'll add to make the site applicable to adults as well as children.

If you'd like to contribute to the new site name, and / or have suggestions for what should be included in the site going forward, please let me know.
