The Washington University NF Center, in collaboration with the St. Louis Children’s Hospital Foundation, is pleased to announce our upcoming August 2015 Club NF event – Club NF Plays at the Lodge!
Please join us at The Lodge Des Peres in Des Peres, MO on Saturday, August 1, from 9:30 a.m. – noon for an action-packed morning of indoor sports and gym activities. During this event, children will participate in a variety of motor activities led by St. Louis Children’s Hospital therapists, Courtney Dunn, PT, DPT and Amy Westfall, ODT, OTR/L. While the children are working on their motor skills, parents will learn about utilizing technology for increased productivity in the classroom from Occupational Therapist, Nicole Weckherlin, OTR/L.
After the event, families will receive day passes to enjoy the Lodge’s aquatic center with indoor and outdoor pools, so be sure to bring your swimsuits, towels and sunscreen! To learn more, check out our flyer, or contact Kirsten Brouillet at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to RSVP by Friday, July 31 to save your spot!
The Washington University NF Center, partnering with the St. Louis Children’s Hospital Foundation, is proud to provide Club NF — a FREE, bi-monthly, play-based therapy program for children with NF1 in kindergarten – 8th grade. Our St. Louis Children’s Hospital therapists directly interact with the children and use everyday activities to work on skills often delayed in children with NF1. From swimming (motor skills) to theatre (attention skills), Club NF is designed to give children with NF1 the tools they need to be successful.
