Family Education Conference

Sunday, April 26, 2020
Alberta Children's Hospital

Bring the whole family out to the second annual Family Education Conference at the Alberta Children’s Hospital. This program strives to help parents navigate the pathways of their children’s learning and education. This year, we have sessions on coping with procedural anxiety, tips for advocating for your kids in school, learning more about your child’s Individual Program Plan (IPP), teens transitioning to adult care, self-care for the whole family and an overview of current research. We will also have a resource fair for parents and teens and we'll keep the younger kids busy with crafts, exercise programs and lots of fun!

Registration deadline: Wednesday, April 15, 2020



Cancer in the Classroom

What do you say to a child who says, “Is cancer contagious?”

Cancer in the Classroom is a program designed to help kids with cancer talk to their classmates about their diagnosis and treatment. The goal is to build awareness, understanding and empathy in the child’s school community to mitigate potential social, academic and adjustment difficulties. All this is done through an interactive presentation designed specifically for the level of understanding of the students.

Whether newly diagnosed or re-integrating back into class during/after treatment, this presentation is an effective way to answer questions, clarify misunderstandings, share the facts, provide resources and ease concerns about cancer.

Kids Cancer Care matches patients and survivors in Kindergarten to grade 12 with volunteer tutors, who provide home-based  one-to-one tutoring. These tutoring sessions help learners work towards specific academic goals, while  boosting their confidence and helping them develop general learning skills.
