OPWSA Fall Family and Caregiver Conference 2017
The Ontario Prader-Willi Syndrome Association (OPWSA) invites you to come out for a great weekend of learning, information sharing, networking, peer support, and fun including wonderful programming for individuals with PWS of all ages and their siblings.
The Saturday conference will cover topics on:
Possible funding and services available for families with PWS which will be presented by representatives from Special Services at Home (SSAH) and Developmental Services Ontario (DSO)
Behaviour support and interventions
Exercise and physical activity opportunities
Health supervision from birth to adult
We will be holding our Annual General Meeting (AGM) over lunch on Saturday.
There will also be a Saturday evening event at the SilverCity Oakville & VIP Cinemas which is located right beside the hotel. Individuals in the Kids Program will be able to see a movie, while parents can mingle in the VIP lounge. The costs for the evening event are not included in the ticket costs for the conference.
On Sunday, the conference will be parent led. Panels of parents will be talking about nutrition and food security, living arrangements for your child and being an effective advocate, as well as a moderated Q & A.
