Family Strengths Network Hosts Early Intervention Fair Saturday, Apr. 9

Family Strengths Network

On Saturday Family Strengths Network is hosting our annual Early Intervention Fair from 10 a.m. until noon. Early intervention means services and supports that are available to babies and young children with developmental delays and disabilities and their families (CDC). In other words, early intervention services are meant to help when kids do not meet expected developmental milestones.

Both of my children received speech therapy from a very young age and one also received occupational therapy, so I have worked with many of these service providers personally. The Early Intervention Fair was born out of a discussion with several of my friends that also have children who have received services. If you don’t know what is available, how can you get your children the help that they need? If you don’t know what the expected milestones are, how can you know if your child has missed them? We decided that we wanted to bring together all of the providers and showcase all of the great support that is available in the area. Plus taking that first step to reach out for help can be hard, but hopefully stopping by FSN is not a daunting. 

First Born of Los Alamos, JJAB Los Alamos, Las Cumbres Community Services, Parents Reaching Out, Santa Fe Play, Physical Therapy Plus, Los Alamos Public Schools PreK, and more will be in attendance. 

As an extra incentive, the first 20 families to attend will receive a free sensory bin and all attendees can enter to win a free Early Intervention Games book and scooter board.
