Parents or guardians of kids in special education are invited to a free information fair from 5 to 9:30 p.m. May 23 at Walt Whitman High School, 301 West Hills Rd., Huntington Station.

Workshops and vendors will present information on topics relating to all stages of a child’s educational experience from preschool through college. They’ll also cover aging out of the system and career planning.

LeDerick Horne, an advocate for students with disabilities, is scheduled to be the keynote speaker.

Preregistration isn’t required. Free raffles and refreshments will be offered.

The event is sponsored by the South Huntington School District’s Student Services and SEPTA, in partnership with the Elwood, Half Hollow Hills, Huntington, Northport-East Northport and Harborfields school districts.
