Cobb Schools to host Resource Fair for students with disabilities
The 2023 Cobb Schools Community Connections Resource Fair is scheduled for Feb. 7 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the district’s Cobb Innovation and Technology Academy in Marietta.
The annual fair allows families from across the metro to come to Cobb to learn about extracurricular opportunities available for their students with disabilities. The Cobb Schools annual resource fair provides an opportunity for families to learn about the sensory-friendly and accessible options offered by Cobb and Atlanta area organizations and attractions.
Parents are able to explore more than 50 different vendors with activities and support for students with disabilities. From summer camps, ballet, and a range of sports to theaters, museums, interactive therapies, and a theme park,
Last year, more than 1,000 participants registered to attend the Cobb Schools event. Families can make reservations to attend here.
Dominique Terens, Cobb Schools Special Education Compliance Supervisor said, “We have heard from families who spend hours researching to find accessible and sensory-friendly offerings. Cobb’s resource fair cuts out that research time by connecting families directly with the opportunities that fit their student’s needs. Plus, all the information is in one location! This family-centered event is another example of how our Cobb Schools team helps families and students beyond the classroom.”
