The 4th Annual Southwestern Pennsylvania ‘Special Needs Fair & Expo’ will take place on Saturday, April 27, 2019, from 10 AM – 2 PM at The Pathfinder School, 50 Donati Road, Bethel Park, PA.

“We are very excited to host the expo again this year. This event is an excellent opportunity to connect the special needs community with available resources,” said Tom Kelton, event founder and chairperson.

The Expo, which is free and open to the public, is geared toward persons with special needs and their family members, caregivers and guardians throughout the southwestern PA, tri-state region. It features both indoor and outdoor activities and will take place rain or shine. Some of the scheduled activities include music and dance performances, opportunities to climb aboard various emergency vehicles, playtime with therapy dogs, face-painting, and more.

In addition to the activities, attendees are able to speak with professionals representing a wide-range of services and obtain informational materials. Many of the vendors also have giveaways and activities at their individual tables.

Vendors that participated in previous years included Allegheny Behavior Analysis Services, Autism Society of Pittsburgh, The Children’s Home of Pittsburgh & Lemieux Family Center, Empowered Medical Advocacy, iDiscovery Toys, Intervention Fundamentals, Kepro / Southwestern PA Health Care Quality Unit, PA Tourette Syndrome Alliance, Parent to Parent, Pennsylvania Mentor, Usborne Books, and WHS Children’s Therapy Center.

The event facility, The Pathfinder School, offers free onsite parking during the event and is located along the Pittsburgh Light Rail system at the Dorchester stop. Light refreshments will be available for a nominal fee.
