The Region 2 DD Ombuds, Andrea and Beth, had information tables at 2 School-to-Work Transition Fairs in King County in March 2019. The fairs were for students with developmental disabilities, their families, caregivers, teachers, agencies, and employers.
There were representatives from over 40 organizations at the fairs to provide information to the students, their families, and other advocates on services and activities that are available as students transition out of school. Information was available on supported employment, community resources, transportation, parks & recreation programs, family advocacy, housing, higher education, Developmental Disabilities Administration services, family resources, and DD Ombuds services.
These fairs were a great opportunity for the DD Ombuds to connect with students with disabilities, their families, and other organizations in King county.
