Building Alliances Resource Fair Set for January 12

There are a number of resources to assist families of children with special needs, but finding them is not always simple. That is why the Fayette County Public School System’s Exceptional Children’s Services department and ExceptionalOPS are sponsoring a resource fair called “Building Alliances.”

The fair, taking place in the McIntosh High gym on January 12 from 7-9 p.m., brings parents and local service providers together in one convenient location for the dissemination of information about programs and services geared toward children with special needs.

Parents will learn about recreational opportunities, tutoring services, support groups, the PALS program, Community Service Board programs, benefits navigators, Hope House (Respite Care) services, and Georgia Learning Resources System opportunities.

Attendance is free. The fair is open to parents, teachers, administrators and service providers of children with special needs.

Contact Linda Williams in the school system’s Exceptional Children’s Services department for more information, 770-460-3911, or Janet Smola, executive director of ExceptionalOPS, 770-639-9169.
