Now in its fourth year, KYD-X hosts The Kids and Youth Disability Expo, an event that is designed specifically for individuals, parents and the carers of young people with a disability.
With over 100 exhibitors at last year’s event, the Expo is the go-to event to find out everything you need to know about support services under the one roof, with information on service providers, therapies, day options and technologies – all designed with young people in mind.
Event organiser, Ben Waechter, himself a father of a child with cerebral palsy, found it challenging and confusing in the early days following diagnosis to find the information that he needed to support his son.
He started KYD-X, a not for profit organisation, and the Kids & Youth Disability Expo with the intent to help others; to provide a greater level of information to parents who might be struggling to find available resources to support their journey. The event has also provided an opportunity for young people, parents and carers to network and share their stories with others who are experiencing similar circumstances.
This year’s event will be held at the Priceline Stadium on Saturday, 12th October from 10am – 4pm.
