You are invited to a community educational event:
“ADVOCATING FOR THE MEDICALLY COMPLEX CHILD”

This is the second in a series of informative talks, empowering the families of children with movement or neurologic challenges.

Join us to learn how others have been the voice for children.
What worked (and what didn’t) and who can help.

They will speak on planning and receiving benefits across the spectrum, and optimizing those benefits, into adulthood. You will also hear from current parents of the Mary Bridge Rehab Clinic, who have empowered their child, themselves, and even their communities.
