Family Days

Primary Years Family Day is an informal conference aimed at families of children with hemiplegia aged 4-10 years.  The day covers key areas in education that affect families and children going through  primary years at school and also the emotional, behavioural and physical aspects of living with hemiplegia  that will be relevant to this age group.  There will be a fun activity for children on the day, and it will be age appropriate for primary school aged children only. 

Secondary Years Family Day is an informal conference aimed at parents / carers of children with hemiplegia aged 11-15 years and  covers key areas that affect families with children going through the Secondary Years stage. Grandparents or other family members who are involved in your child’s life are also welcome to attend. 

Both events are FREE OF CHARGE to attend.
