New resource offered through the CHARGE Syndrome Foundation
www.chargesyndrome.org
 
CHARGE Syndrome is a complex condition that requires the constant education, advocacy, and diligence of the parents or guardians; yet this ongoing support for their children often leaves them depleted and in need of support themselves.

The Jewish Guild for the Blind through their National Tele-Support Network for Parents of Children with Visual Impairments will now be sponsoring a weekly telpehone support group for parents and guardians of children with CHARGE. The group will be facilitated by Sheri Stagner, MA, EdM, the Director of Outreach for the CHARGE Syndrome Foundation.

If you would like to join or simply want information, please call Sheri Stagner at the CHARGE Syndrome Foundation at 1-855-5CHARGE.
