The Washington University NF Center and St. Louis Children’s Hospital invite you to attend our upcoming Club NF – VIRTUAL event, a FREE therapy and educational program for children with NF1.

Join us onSaturday, August 7,for a virtual field trip to theKatmai National Park and Preservein King Salmon, Alaska. We will have a Ranger Talk from a Ranger who lives and works in the park during our field trip and learn about the bears and salmon that live along the Brooks River. After our Ranger talk, our Club NF Physical Therapist will guide us through some Junior Ranger and STEM crafts and activities. The activities will target and promote the 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
