Announcing a new Peer Group for kids with Cerebral Palsy at Support for Families!

Support for Families is proud to host a new Peer Group for Kids Aged 8-12 with Cerebral Palsy beginning October 23, 2012 to be held on the 4th Tuesday of each month from 5:30-6:30pm. This group will be a place for kids with CP to play, socialize and interact. There will also be a buddy/mentoring component, as we hope to involve older teens and young adults with CP. Kids will participate in activities consisting of games, relaxation exercises, social time, and more. The facilitator of the group is Kris Meadows, a young man with CP who is also a student of Occupational Therapy.


While their children 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.


Please note that parents/guardians must remain onsite while children attend the Peer Group. Childcare is available for siblings, if needed (sign up at least 1 week ahead of time).


For more information or to register for the groups, please contact the Support for Families’ Warmline at 415-920-5040.
