Connecting For Kids Offering Free Resource Fairs For Families In NE Ohio

CLEVELAND - During the month of March, Connecting for Kids will be hosting three Resource Fairs in the Greater Cleveland area which coincides with Developmental Disabilities Awareness month. According to the CDC, developmental disabilities affect approx. 1 in 6 children (17%) aged 3–17 years, ADHD and learning disabilities both fall into this category.

In addition to developmental disability providers, the fairs will be filled with mental health professionals. A recent survey by the Pew Research Center, found 4 in 10 U.S. parents are extremely or very worried that their child might deal with depression or anxiety at some point.

Families who pre-register and attend an in-person fair will be entered to win a $100 VISA gift card. In addition, the first 100 families to visit the Connecting for Kids table at the fair will receive a free stuffed animal with a disability awareness pin courtesy of Wild Republic and the Rotary Club of Cleveland. There is also a grab & go resource bag option for those who prefer to stay socially distanced.

Each fair will be filled with more than 70 providers including therapists, mental health professionals, funding sources, adapted summer camps, adapted recreation, academic resources and other programs.
