Special Needs Network Proudly Presents...
The Biggest Back to School Inclusion Fair and Backpack Give-A-Way in L.A.
Hosted by the Los Angeles Dodgers, Sponsored by Bank of America
Special Needs Network, Inc. (SNN), California’s leading grassroots autism advocacy organization, in collaboration will host the 9th Annual Back 2 School Health + Resource Fair from 2 to 6 pm on Sunday, August 31 at the Dodger Stadium Pavillion. Aimed to provide relief to families under financial pressure who may find it difficult to purchase back to school materials, We are committed to distribute over 2500 backpacks filled with supplies like pencils, notebooks, and more.
“We began Back 2 School to provide underserved children and youths with the tools essential for school success,” said president + co-founder Areva Martin, Esq. “Today, we address not only academic needs, but health and wellness as well.”
Back 2 School is the biggest inclusion healthcare + resource fair in Los Angeles for children with developmental disabilities and their families. The event will bring out resource vendors to provide families with medical, dental, developmental, and mental health screenings, pro bono legal clinic, and educational workshops on a range of topics from harnessing the power of social media, to improving your overall health and wellness through daily exercises, and more.
In addition to the signature backpack giveaway, Back 2 School will also feature fun activities including rock climbing, arts and crafts, pony ride, bouncy house, gaming stations, live music, and surprise celebrity guests. Additionally, there will be a raffle that will include the latest Tablets and more.
“This is one of the country’s most innovative event and a much-needed part of the Los Angeles community,” said Chairman of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Mark Ridley-Thomas.
Each year, Back 2 School provides a fun and inclusive setting that brings developmentally disabled children together with their typical peers for an exciting afternoon filled with family-friendly fun and critical socialization.

Special Needs Network’s mission is to raise public awareness of developmental disabilities and to impact public policy, while providing education and resources to families, children and adults. SNN serves as a link between underserved communities and mainstream developmental disability organizations and governmental institutions, which often fail to address issues specific to these communities.
