Resource Fair

There is nothing quite like having the opportunity to visit with companies and organizations who serve children with a brain injury, all in the same place. Our Resource Fair is meant to provide an all access pass to our families to resources, services, products, therapies, etc., that could help their child or help them care for their child. Below is some footage of this years Resource Fair that we hope you enjoy checking out!
