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. 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. October's hangout will be led by FARA Ambassador Andrea Garcia.
The theme will be: Back to school part 2. How is the school year going? How do you talk to friends and school staff about your ataxia? What are your strategies for studying or socializing? We will be joined by 2 people with Friedreich's ataxia currently in college/grad 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!
