Parent Advocacy Network Zoom: Preparing to Send My Child to School with Leslie Graff, M.S., C.C.L.S.
Tuesday, August 3, 11 am ET
Sending a child to school is scary for parents. Sending a child with a birthmark to school presents a host of challenges from social acceptance from peers to medical accommodations. Join VBF Board Chair and Patient Advocate Corinne Barinaga and Psychosocial and Developmental Expert Leslie Graff as they explore sendinging a child with a birthmark to school and provide tools for you and your family on this journey.
VBF Parent Advocacy Network
The VBF Parent Advocacy Network is a series of 60-90 minute monthly facilitated virtual sessions established to provide psychosocial and community support to families affected by a vascular birthmark, anomaly, and/or related syndrome and to explore affected family’s needs. Hosted by Corinne Barinaga, Chair of the VBF Board of Directors and Director of Patient Advocacy, this series explores a different topic each month beyond diagnosis and treatment options. Featuring activities, special guest co-hosts, and tools to equip you in this birthmark journey, attendees are encourage to turn on their cameras and microphones and participate in the conversation.
We invite parents to join even if they are not needing answers. You might have the answer through experience to help others.
