Nicole’s Nook: Visual Scheduling with Choiceworks

For children with NF1, a visual schedule provides structure and a feeling of control over their environment, increasing completion of daily tasks and transitions. St. Louis Children’s Hospital OT, Nicole Weckherlin, recommends the Choiceworks app to address these concerns.


Join us on Saturday, February 27, from 9:30 a.m. – noon, as Club NF heads into the kitchen at Schnucks Cooks Cooking School in Des Peres, MO! Children will work on a variety of fine motor and social skills in the kitchen while Courtney Metzinger, OTD, MFA, OTR/L will give a one hour talk about executive function to parents.
