What You Will Learn:

This webinar will explore the psychosocial and educational considerations for individuals with Turner syndrome (TS). Specifically, we will discuss how to bridge care and facilitate communication between the school and medical teams for girls and women with TS. Relevant school-based and group-based interventions for this population will also be explored. Overall, this webinar will focus on support and care coordination across contexts (i.e., hospital systems and schools). The current state of the research on school-based and group-based psychological (social-emotional and behavioral) interventions, relevant for girls with TS, will be shared. While this webinar will be specific to TS, many of the characteristics of TS overlap with other populations. Furthermore, learning how to facilitate communication between multiple parties will be explored and skills can be applied outside of TS-specific situations.|

Who Should Attend:
Parents and adult women with Turner syndrome, allied health professionals, educators, administrators, and policymakers are encouraged to attend.
