The Chicago non-profit  Neighborhood Parents Network is hosting the 11th Annual Developmental Differences Resource Fair on May 7 from 12 to 5 p.m.

The event is at the University of Illinois Chicago Student Center East, 750 Halsted St., in Chicago.

Anyone seeking support and resources for a child with developmental differences, including behavior challenges, regression or delays due to COVID-19, autism, sensory processing disorder, physical disabilities and Down syndrome, is invited to attend.

The fair will feature exhibit booths where parents can get information and speak with therapy providers and representatives from schools, camps and other agencies that provide help and support for families. Individuals may also get advice and learn new strategies at expert-led sessions on topics including:

  • The Individualized Education Program (IEP)
  • Grants and government programs
  • Enrichment and recreation opportunities

Staff from our Chicago offices will be at the fair to share how the Division of Specialized Care for Children can help families connect with services and resources.
