It's called The Abilities Expo.
Think of something like a Car Show or Homeschool Convention.
But instead of cars or curriculum, this expo showcases all kinds of stuff to enhance the lives of special needs individuals, as well as their family members, caregivers, healthcare professionals, and therapists.
The Expo is also designed for senior adults to assist them in staying healthy and active as they age.
And best of all - it's totally free!
Companies can demonstrate their products and services. There are free workshops to attend featuring topics such as how to select the best accessible vehicle, tips on traveling with a disability, or how to modify your home to make it wheelchair friendly. There are also several special performances featuring canine assistance, adaptive sports, and dance productions.

I'm so excited about this! I have the Houston one on my calendar and am already looking forward to seeing what all is out there for the special needs population.
If an Expo is not coming anywhere close to you, how about emailing them to suggest it??? Be an advocate! The worst they can do is say no.
Enjoy your Monday!
