LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Any parent has a million questions about their kid, but for parents of kids with disabilities, those questions tend to be a little different.

That's why the Angelina County Special Needs Organization is hosting a resource fair on Saturday, Sept. 13 to answer all the questions that parents and families might have.

The resource fair, called "A Child Sees No Obstacles," will have more than 50 vendors and several experts.

"For our program specifically, we go out in the home and do home visits, and what we kind of found is that a lot of families new to having a child with child health care services don't know about the services that are out there," said Debra Hadnot, a member of the organization. "Programs change and new people come, so we wanted to provide the community with this resource so families would know what is available for services."

The fair is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Lufkin High School, which is at 309 S. Medford Dr. Some of the vendors at the event will be Lufkin ISD, Texas Department of State Health Services, Cornerstone ECI, Harold's House, Lufkin Ambucs, as well as many more.

For more information, call Hadnot at (936) 633-3657.
