• Introduction •        ^ Jump to Top of the Text ^

This Weekend Conference will provide an opportunity for sharing and learning with parents and professionals and anyone who may have an interest in Sturge-Weber Syndrome.

Our theme this year, “Setting the Stage for Success” is to honour those individuals affected by Sturge-Weber Syndrome. It shall be a time for us to generate positive energy that we know is possible when families have the opportunity to network and share their strategies and knowledge that comes with raising a child with Sturge-Weber Syndrome.

We look forward to creating new friendships and rekindling old ones. We look forward to sharing experiences, strategies, acquiring new ideas and information that will help to strengthen families
