Representatives from participating organizations praised the fair.
"This is such a great opportunity to meet families face-to-face, which is the best way to share information and make a true connection," said Leigh Reid, development and communications director at Extreme Kids & Crew.
INCLUDEnyc is dedicated to helping kids with special needs live more fulfilled lives and was recently awarded $3 million by the State Education Department to serve as the Family and Community Engagement Center (FACE) for all five boroughs.

"Everyone deserves to express themselves," said Harley Sherwood, the program manager at CO/LAB Theater, reflecting on the fair. "We have so much to learn from young people with disabilities."
