China Waiting Child Program: Craniofacial Conditions

I want to  let you know about a new webinar being hosted by our Waiting Child Team: China Waiting Child Medical Conditions Overview: Craniofacial Conditions. In this webinar series we will be providing information on specific special needs that we see in the China Waiting Child Program. The goal is to provide some education to help demystify a special need. We know the medical terms can be overwhelming and even intimidating, so our goal is to help you understand a certain special need that you may not even have previously considered. And of course, we’ll be telling you about beautiful Waiting Children who have that special need.

This webinar will cover common Craniofacial medical conditions that we see in the Waiting Child Program. Topics will include Cleft Lip and Palate, Hemifacial Microsomia, Microtia, and Facial Deformities. You’ll have a great introduction to learn more about this common medical condition, to see before and after pictures, and an opportunity to ask questions.  When families hear the term “special needs”, many may assume this means a child has a severe, life-long, life-altering medical or developmental condition. In the Waiting Child Program we often see children of varying ages with needs which are easily treated, correctable or manageable, such as Craniofacial conditions.  Everyone is encouraged to attend!

 Be sure to register to for this webinar which will be held on Wednesday, April 24, 2013, at 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM CDT. To sign up please follow the link below:
