This Institute was held in both Spanish and English for families of children with disabilities and or special needs. During this event, the parents had the opportunity to attend various and informative workshops on services and rights of children with disabilities.
“Cynthia Valencia ran the table very well as always!
About 80-90 parents attended and about 25 kids showed up for childcare where Marlene Ibarra and Grisel Ibarra volunteered their time all day and gave pointers to the honor students who also helped from Greenfield High School. Ismael Mondragon also volunteered his time. Thank you all!
We also had the opportunity to interact with parents and other vendors, who are always personable. We also got a chance to see parents from past Tucci services who are always so appreciative and happy to see us!” – Nancy Kelley, South County Regional Coordinator
