 South County SELPA to Hold Special Ed Resource Fair

​Parents and community members in South County will be able to learn more about services for students in special education programs Wednesday as part of an annual resource fair.

The Community Advisory Committee for the South County Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA) has organized the event for the past six years. Each year, about 60 people have attended, said Liliana Armenta, a resource parent with the South County SELPA.

The event “empowers and educates parents about local agencies in their community,” she said.

There will be about 15 local nonprofit groups there to present information about their services. The informal event will run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 23 at the South County Regional Education Center, 800 National City Blvd. Suite 202 in National City.

There also will be prize drawings, childcare, and dental checkups.

“Bring a friend, and bring your questions,” Armenta said.

The Community Advisory Committee is a team of parents and others with a personal or professional interest in securing appropriate services for students with special needs.
