Saturday, 4/10 1-2 PM ET
Join the FARA Ambassadors for a hangout for teenagers, 13-19, with ataxia (of any form). FA Teen Hangouts are hour-long web-based hangouts. This is simply a place to meet and talk to other people who may be going through struggles and good times similar to you. (If you don't have ataxia, you are not allowed to participate in the hangout.) There will also be at least three adult FARA Ambassadors present. The adults will be there to help keep the conversation safe and going.
This month we will be talking about school. In some states kids are going back to school full time. Tell us what is going on for you! Are you happy or struggling with school right now? If it is hard for you, do you have ways of coping? We start at the topic, but just go with the flow of the discussion. So join us even if you don’t want to talk about school!
Join us to talk or just listen. We are sure you'll find you aren't alone! It is just a relaxed conversation…the theme gets us going, but we definitely don't stick to it! It isn't counseling.
|When:||Saturday, April 10th, 1-2 PM ET
(The hangout opens 15 minutes early to try to work out technical issues. Please remember we are volunteers not IT professionals! Come early if you've never attended a hangout on Zoom before.)
|Who:||Teens with ataxia ages 13 to 19 (Please note: all the teens will be together)|
