Developmental Differences Resource Fairâ„¢ @ DePaul College Prep · Mar 26, 2017

Developmental Differences

Our 6th annual fair is dedicated to providing Chicago families with school options, service providers and other resources that focus on serving parents of children with developmental differences. 

Designed for families with children ages infant through 8th grade. RSVP below to expedite your check-in process. 

Categories of needs include, but are not limited to developmental delays (i.e., speech, motor skills), sensory processing disorder, autism, ADD/ADHD, PDD-NOS, mixed receptive-expressive language disorder, Down Syndrome, and physical disabilities. 

Note: We recommend, where possible, to make this an adult-only event. This convention style event and workshops are not ideal for children. See our list of exhibitors (updated weekly) and more information for parents here.

Update! 3 free workshop topics announced:

  1. Advocating for therapy: You'll learn how school-based services (including Early Intervention, occupational therapy and speech therapy) differ from outpatient (private) services. You'll also get a brief overview of ABA vs Floortime and learn about neuropsychological testing.
  2. Advocating in CPS: A panel of CPS parents of kids who have IEPs will discuss how they worked to secure the best education and care possible through Chicago Public Schools.
  3. Advocating beyond traditional therapies: Experts offer resources that are available to families beyond that of basic therapies, such as IEP consultants, experts who can help navigate health insurance, programming and more.
