Stop by the DSCC tent in Conservation World for fun activities for kids and valuable information for families.

The University of Illinois at Chicago’s Division of Specialized Care for Children (DSCC) is excited to be at this year’s Illinois State Fair in Springfield. We’ll have a tent set up in Conservation World, which is located in the northwest corner of the fairgrounds,  from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Aug. 10-12.

We’ll have coloring activities, including stickers for kids to personalize and entry forms for our 2019 calendar contest. Kids and adults can also play our bean bag toss game for a chance to win prizes. We’ll also have a wealth of information about how DSCC can partner with your family to support your child with special healthcare needs.

Please stop by and say hello to our staff and learn more about how we help families!
