Information is power! FOCUS + Fragile Kids offers information to give you power!
Our Annual Education Conference is a great day of learning and networking. FOCUS + Fragile Kids invites local professionals to speak on various topics to speak at the Annual Education Conference and help parents (and other professionals) find the information they need. Representatives from community agencies exhibit so participants can learn about services, such as respite care, therapy groups, assistive technology, and adapted equipment. Parents enjoy a day of networking with professionals, community agencies, and other parents and learn valuable information to help their child…..and their family. There is a small fee to cover the cost of the conference, but scholarships are available for those with financial need.
Spring & Fall Workshops Pre-registration is required for all workshops. All workshops are held at the FOCUS + Fragile Kids office at 3825 Presidential Parkway, Suite 103. Atlanta, GA 30340. If you are not a FOCUS member but would like to attend, please email [email protected]. Childcare will not be provided.
