Learn, Lunch & Laugh is a program designed to educate parents and caregivers about a topic related to spina bifida while their children are supervised nearby, enjoying fun activities together. Our second Learn, Lunch & Laugh in Greater Cincinnati takes us to Parky’s Farm in Winton Woods. At this session, Dr. Steph Weber, Psychologist and LEND Training Director, will be joined by Dr. Nicoletta Frankenstein, Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics Fellow, to discuss early child development through age 5. In this presentation, we will touch on developmental milestones, developmental delays common in children with spina bifida, and developmentally-appropriate activities families can use to encourage development and increase independence. Children will explore the farm and participate in the “Farm Friends” program with volunteers from the UC School of Social Work and the UC University Center of Excellence in Developmental Disabilities LEND Program, while parents gather in the Shetland Shelter for the presentation. Afterward, everyone will join together for lunch in the Shetland Shelter. Our goal is to provide one volunteer to accompany each child with spina bifida on the farm. Siblings will be attended by the same volunteer, unless otherwise requested. Please contact Diane at diane.burns@sb-coalition.org if you have questions. DON'T WAIT TO REGISTER! This session is limited to 30 people due to the size of the pavilion at Parky’s Farm. Because of this, each family is asked to register no more than four family members. Please note the ticket type at the top of the box when prompted to add names of attendees during registration, ie; Parent, Child, Sibling.
