SCI Forum Schedule

The ABCs of Parenting with an SCI

Parenting is never a breeze, but parenting with a spinal cord injury can present additional and unique challenges. Find out how others with SCI have met these challenges in this panel discussion featuring three individuals with different injury levels who came to parenting at different points along their injury time lines: before, during and after their injuries. They will share their experiences, insights, practical tips and coping mechanisms for handling a multitude of parenting issues. Whether you have an injury and are trying to decide about starting a family, or you already have children but are newly injured, this forum offers a variety of perspectives, information and encouragement. Bring your questions and join the conversation during the question-and-answer period at the end of the evening.

5:30 PM - 6:30 PM Meet & Greet: Meet in the hospital cafeteria to socialize, network and eat before heading to the forum. Purchase dinner or bring your own. No RSVP—just show up!
