Stroke information day for parents/carers – Saturday 10 June

The Stroke Association is hosting a Parent Support & Information Day in London on Saturday 10 June. 

  Anna Panton, the Stroke Association’s childhood stroke project manager, told us more about the day.

What happens on a Childhood Stroke Support and Information Day?

The Childhood Stroke Parent Support and Information Day is the opportunity for parents and carers of children affected by stroke to come together, find peer support networks and access information and resources relevant to them. You can learn more about the days by watching the Stroke Association’s 2015 film.

What kind of presentations are happening on the 10 June?

Key headlines from the new childhood stroke guidelines will be discussed by Dr John Pappachan; Professor Chris McKevitt will look at the unmet needs after stroke in childhood; and Consultant Occupational Therapist Dr Anne Gordon will join us from Evelina London Children’s Hospital to talk about rehabilitation and therapy. Marguerite Haye will talk about SEN, EHCP’s and working with schools. There will also be updates about the Childhood Stroke Project, and the work that the Stroke Association does.

How can we register for the day?

The day is free and parents/carers can register here.

Will there be any more days like this in 2017?

The Stroke Association hope to hold a day in Liverpool later in the year – email anna.panton@stroke.org.uk to register your interest and be kept informed.
