Greetings and welcome!

About the event

Mieux comprendre la diversité neurologique, physique, intellectuelle et sensorielle is an event aimed at better understanding diversity, whether neurological, physical, intellectual or sensory. Better understanding means respecting differences and recognizing that people who are different have a right to live their lives as they are. It means making them feel welcome in our world.


Do you wish to broaden your knowledge of autism spectrum disorders (ASD), learning difficulties, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorders (ADHD), and intellectual and physical disabilities? Are you seeking answers to your questions or simply looking for new resources in your area?


Mieux comprendre brings together people with special needs and their families as well as health and education professionals to share knowledge and concrete ways to support them in their day-to-day lives.


* Please note that some of the activities offered during this three-day event are only offered in French.


One child out of five in Québec has special needs!

Mieux comprendre seeks to support people with special needs (such as autism, learning difficulties, ADHD, intellectual disabilities, Tourette’s syndrome and physical disabilities) by giving them the tools to grow and develop themselves in society to the best of their ability.


This event is open to all, parents, teachers, educators, professionals, employers, community organizations, people with handicaps and their families.
