Virtual – Family Education + Connection “Ages and Stages: Teens and Tweens”
September 29 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join VHF for a virtual program for families! This program is designed to support families of children with inherited bleeding disorders ages 11+ with community connection and education. This program is free and open to VHF constituents.
Topic: Ages and Stages: Tweens and Teens (Ages 11+)
This session will help parents better understand what they can expect behaviorally and emotionally throughout the tween and teen years. Brain development, temperament, common mood and behavior problems in adolescence and parenting strategies will be discussed. The session will include some bleeding disorder specific information, for example, when a child can start to become more independent with their treatment plan from a behavioral standpoint not a medical standpoint, how (hemophilia) treatments progress with age, and the prevalence of anxiety and other behavioral challenges among adolescents with bleeding disorders.
Presenter: Juliana S. Bloom, Ph.D., Pediatric Neuropsychologist at The Levin Center
