Every year, families from across the metro come to Cobb’s annual Community Connections Resource Fair to learn about extracurricular opportunities available for their students with disabilities. From summer camps, ballet, and a range of sports to theatres, museums, interactive therapies, and a theme park, the resource fair provides parents the opportunity to explore more than 50 different vendors with activities and supports for students with disabilities.
The 2023 Cobb Schools Community Connections Resource Fair is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on February 7 at the district’s Cobb Innovation and Technology Academy (CITA) in Marietta. Families can make reservations to attend here.
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.
“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,” said Dominique Terens, Cobb Schools Special Education Compliance Supervisor.
