Cerebral Palsy Support Group
Fourth Tuesday of the Month
First Meeting: 10/23/2012
Support for Families is proud to host a new Peer Group for kids aged 8-12 years, with Cerebral Palsy. This group will be a place for kids to play, socialize and interact. Kids will participate in activities consisting of games, relaxation exercises, social time, and more.
The peer support group will foster peer support and social interactions. The activities are tailored to increase positive social participation, increase self-esteem, friendships, and physical movement.
The facilitators of the group are Kris Meadows, a young man with CP who is also a student of Occupational Therapy and Marina Gonzalez, an OT graduate student.
While their kids are participating in the Peer Group, parents can attend the Parents of Children with Cerebral Palsy Group which will be facilitated by Audrey Vernick, parent of a son with hemiplegic CP and the founder of Camp Bennett (http://bennettsworld.wordpress.com).  

Please note that parents/guardians must remain onsite while children attend the Peer Group.
