Held in the evening at the Hiram Johnson Family Education Center, the Harvest Carnival provided dinner and activities for close to 500 students, parents, and family members. Children enjoyed games and handicrafts adapted for their special education needs.
The Harvest Carnival was presented by staff and volunteers of the SCOE Infant Development Program with assistance from community supporters.
The Infant Development Program provides individualized instruction and therapy for infants and toddlers with speech, hearing, vision, and movement disabilities. Each child receives comprehensive early intervention services in his or her home from a team of SCOE professionals: teachers, nurses, speech therapists, pediatric therapists, and infant educators. Services include assessment, family support, and specialized instruction to meet the individual needs of every child and family.
SCOE's Infant Development Program also provides parent support groups, parent classes, and family get-togethers. Approximately 300 children from birth to age three participate in the Infant Development Program with their parents throughout Sacramento County. The Infant Development Program is operated by the Special Education Department of the Sacramento County Office of Education.
