9th June_Learning more about essential tremor and supporting children

9th June_Learning more about essential tremor and supporting children.

Essential tremor is a nervous system (neurological) disorder that causes involuntary and rhythmic shaking. It can affect almost any part of your body, but the trembling occurs most often in your hands — especially when you do simple tasks, such as drinking from a glass or tying shoelaces.

There is a first introductory event on the 9th June at 6pm to discuss the very important and often unrecognized condition of essential tremor in children. 

The online event will be hosted by our Children’s Liaison Officer and include:

·         > An introduction to the National Tremor Foundation

·         > What is essential tremor

·         > A child’s experience of school life with essential tremor through the eyes of a parent

·         > Question & Answer session

If you are interested in attending or would like further details, please contact
