Young amputees learn to handle teasing & bullying at War Amps London seminar

LONDON, ON, Oct. 25 /CNW Telbec/ - Growing up as an amputee has its share of challenges, from dealing with teasing, bullying and staring, to simple frustration at sometimes not being able to take part in an activity or keep up with your peers.

Child amputees from across Ontario will have the opportunity to talk about these challenges and get practical solutions from older Champs in an open-forum session today at The War Amps 2009 Ontario Child Amputee (CHAMP) Seminar.

The session will take place at 10:30 a.m. in the Bristol A & B Room of the Sheraton Four Points Hotel in London, 1150 Wellington Road South.

Earlier sessions in the morning include the importance of healthy living for amputees, looking at some of the helpful daily living aids available for amputees and learning how to become a Safety Ambassador with The War Amps PLAYSAFE Program.

Media are welcome to attend these sessions, or interviews can be arranged at any time.

The three-day Seminar winds up today at 11:30 a.m.
