SPARK Centre Offical Launch Party (You’re Invited!)
On Thursday 29 November 2018, Spark Centre, a new social enterprise and alternative therapy centre for children with special needs in Thailand, will officially launch. The evening, at Lebua Hotel, will be a kick off for Spark Centre, but more specifically an introduction to its first offering: Horse Boy Method and Movement Method out of the USA, with their creator Rupert Isaacson.
Rupert and team will be in Thailand training Spark Centre therapists in their methods as of mid-November through early December.
The evening of the 29th is a unique opportunity to meet Rupert and hear his incredible personal story: from father of a non verbal boy with autism to creator of a world-renowned centre called Horse Boy Foundation which has changed the lives of over 10,000 families impacted by autism in the US and Europe over the past 12 years. Please consider joining us for the evening to learn more about his story, his amazing son and these revolutionary approaches to working with kids with autism, but also children with other neuro-sensory conditions.

SENIA Thailand Community Fair:
Saturday June 1st (9am – 1pm)
Does your school/organisation want to have a booth at our first Community Fair?
So often we hear from both parents and teachers/therapists, that they don’t get the information they need as they never have the opportunity to meet. Admin or admissions handles the first meet. We want to change that!
SENIA Thailand and BKK Kids have teamed up to host our first community fair at St Andrews Sukhumvit (Ekamai BTS) to bring together our community into one space where the people who might need our services or support, can come and meet us and find out more about what we do.
Learning support departments, therapy centres, parent groups, hospitals, specialists, counsellors, kindergartens, play groups, home school groups, and tutor centres, are all invited to join us.
Feel free to have a booth with information and/or organise activities that showcase what you do. So far there will be activities for teens arranged by LEAP, for young children from BAMBI, and some petting horses from SPARK. The more the merrier – remember it is an inclusive event!
Booths are 500 baht to cover admin and set up costs and a receipt can be given on the day. Register below.
