District hosts Resource Fair for families of special education students | FAMILY MATTERS

Enumclaw School District Student Support Services will present a Family Resource Fair and open house from 9 to 11 a.m. March 10 in the Enumclaw High School library, 226 Semanski St.

The Family Resource Fair is an opportunity for special education students of all grade levels and their families to connect with resources that may offer support and information.

Students with disabilities and their families will be able to talk directly with agencies and college representatives who can provide various levels of support depending on need. Services like advocacy, job placement, transition to college or work and applying for social security  are examples of assistance our students can receive.

Representatives from the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation, Department of Developmental Disabilities, community and technical schools, employment agencies, internship programs, SEPAC (Special Education Parents Advisory Council), ARC of King County, counseling agencies, Special Olympics/recreation programs, an attorney who specializes in obtaining guardianship and a father’s focused support group.  A communications specialist will provide a brief presentation at 10 a.m. about using the iPad.

For information, contact Gail VanHoof at 360-802-7820, Laurie Olsen-Pennington at 360-802-7821 or Ramsey Graham at 253-569-0377.
