The Special Education Parent Advisory Committee and Mount Laurel Special Services have teamed up to host a “Special Needs Resource Fair and Sensory Experience.

MOUNT LAUREL — Children who have special needs — physical, behavioral, emotional or mental — often need specific help and supports. For their parents, sometimes finding the right resources can be challenging.

The school district’s special services department and the Special Education Parent Advisory Committee are hosting a “Special Needs Resource Fair and Sensory Experience” on Tuesday, Feb. 13, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the Larchmont Elementary School on Larchmont Boulevard.

The fair will include over 50 vendors, many of them local, that will provide parents with more information about the programs and supports they can offer.

Some of those scheduled to attend include:

Statewide Parent Advocacy Network: A New Jersey nonprofit that aims to “empower and support families and inform and involve professionals interested in the healthy development and education of children and youth.”

Say It With Clay: A nonprofit in Collingswood that helps “people with diverse special needs benefit from the therapeutic power of clay.”

We Rock the Spectrum: A Mount Laurel gym for children with all types of abilities.

Flyers Youth Special Hockey: A program that gives students age 5 and older with developmental disabilities a chance to participate in hockey.

Visitors will also get the opportunity to “experience what it’s like to have dyslexia and other sensory issues,” according to an advertisement for the event.

For more information, call Diane Willard, the district’s director of special education, at 856-235-3417, ext. 7932
