N.Y.S. Senator Andrew J. Lanza held his 11th Special Needs Fair on the theme of “What Every Caregiver Should Know.” The May 17th event at the Jewish Community Center of Manor Road, brought together different schools, day programs, foundations and city agencies, offering day habilitation, transportation options, health, education and more.
Caregivers and people with disabilities could learn about the different programs that are available. There were also sessions about new delivery options for services and other information to help people access their services. There was also plenty of free stuff to take home.
“My staff is going to think this is a lot of work,”Senator Lanza announced to Life-Wire News Service, “…but I think we ought to do this twice a year.”
