Leyden students with disabilities, their families and community members, are invited to engage in Options Fair meetings, a series of events held via Zoom this October and November. The programs are free, and the Leyden community is invited to attend.

The fair offers students with special needs the opportunity to meet representatives from colleges, trades and certification programs and support organizations. These agents provide information about post secondary opportunities, adult living, residential placement, supported employment, recreation and leisure activities, and funding assistance for individuals with disabilities.

 

For additional information, and for specific dates and topics, visit the Options Fair website at https://optionsfair.org/online-events. You can access LIVE, a virtual page for families, from the website.
