GENESEO, N.Y., Feb. 6, 2024 – Navigating the complex system of services available for children and adults with disabilities in Livingston County can often be overwhelming. In response, numerous agencies from across the County have joined together to host a Transition Fair from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on March 7th, 2024 at MacVittie College Union on the campus of SUNY Geneseo.
The event, which is free and open to parents, individuals with disabilities, professionals and the general public, will answer questions regarding access to services and provide further insight on the type of services that are available including intervention services, transitioning to preschool and school age services and adult programming.
The Developmental Disabilities Subcommittee of the Livingston County Community Services Board and the Ella Cline Shear School of Education at SUNY Geneseo have a long-standing history of collaboration gathering local service providers and statewide agencies to discuss what services are available for individuals with a disability.
Among the agencies that will present include ARC GLOW, Person Centered Services, the SUNY Geneseo LIVES Program, Adult Career and Continuing Education Services – Vocational Rehabilitation (ACCESS-VR), the New York State Department of Education, OPWDD Finger Lakes DDRO, Genesee Valley BOCES, the SUNY Geneseo Office of Accessibility and more.
“This fair will be impactful for our community, as individuals with disabilities often face additional challenges to accessing health care, despite being one of the groups that can benefit the most from high quality care,” added Jennifer Rodriguez, Livingston County Public Health Director.
Information regarding disability services is critical for families and individuals with disabilities. To learn more, or join the conversation, attend the Transition Fair on March 7, 2024.
