The Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer will attend Showcase of Community Services sponsored by Cleveland City Schools. The purpose of the Showcase is to increase community awareness and promote the theme “Serving Every Child Every Day.”
The Austin Hatcher Foundation will be in attendance to educate and to demonstrate a service known as Cognitive Remediation therapy.
“We will be showcasing Cognitive Remediation which is a service that is difficult to find, expensive, and most insurance companies will not cover,” said Patricia Kassebaum, clinical director at Hatch’s House of Hope. “Cognitive Remediation helps provide learning strategies to overcome possible learning deficits in attention, working memory, and processing speed that may be associated with childhood cancer survivors.”
Hatch’s House of Hope, a program of the Austin Hatcher Foundation, offers this service, among others, at no cost to the families.
Over 800 Cleveland City School staff, administrators, teachers, and non-certified personnel are expected to attend. The event will be held at Cleveland High school and will take place between 12 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.
