The Frederick County Special Education Citizens Advisory Committee (SECAC) is hosting its annual Resource Fair on March 20, 2010 at Rock Creek School from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. The school is located at 191 Waverley Drive in Frederick, MD. SECAC’s main purpose is to advise the Board of Education and the Director of Special Education and Psychological Services on issues relevant to special education in Frederick County Public Schools. In addition, it hosts an annual Resource Fair that provides information and opportunities for parents and community members to attend workshops relative to services available to families of children with special needs. The Parents’ Place of Maryland will present two workshops: “Making Your Health Plan Work for You” and “Managing the Maze: Record Keeping,” while The Arc of Frederick will be presenting “Educational Advocacy, Information, and Referral.” Dr. Scott Winget is also presenting a workshop on “Understanding Temperament Differences,” in which he explains ways to match strategies to an individual’s behavioral style. In addition, vendors will be present and available to answer questions and provide additional information on services available to these families, including, but not limited to, camps, equipment and therapeutic services.
The ARC of Frederick County will provide a sibshop for brothers and sisters of children with special needs to celebrate the many contributions made by siblings. Siblings ages 6 – 11 may participate in this program from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. during the Resource Fair. In addition, the YMCA of Frederick County will provide an Activity Center at the fair for children in attendance to participate in arts and crafts activities.
Walkersville High School Band Boosters will be selling food at the fair and the Rock Creek Graduation Committee will be hosting a bake sale.
