The Washington University NF Center and St. Louis Children’s Hospital invite you to attend our upcoming Club NF event, a FREE therapy and educational program for children with NF1.
Join us on Saturday, February 1, at Schnucks Decorating School for a fun event featuring cake decorating activities for the older kids and cupcake decorating for the younger kids. These activities will target and promote development of the following skills often delayed in children with NF1:
- Fine motor skills including handwriting, tying shoes, getting dressed and organizing a school binder
- Executive function skills such as following multiple-step directions and finishing homework and school projects
- Social skills to enable your child to speak in a group, initiate conversation, make eye contact and boost confidence.
Club NF is a FREE program that gives school-aged children (grades K – 8) with NF1 the opportunity to experience therapeutic activities within the community setting. The programs are designed by occupational, physical and/or speech therapists from St. Louis Children’s Hospital to challenge and strengthen all areas of development. Parents and siblings are welcome to attend.The Washington University NF Center thanks the St. Louis Children’s Hospital Foundation for making this program possible.
