Educational & Medical Support Services
Wigs 4 Kids also offers Educational Support Services, including classes and social groups where we help our kids recover from the emotional, social, psychological as well as physical side effects of hair loss. Children may participate in art, music & drama therapy, tutoring if they are academically challenged, grooming courses and also yoga
In addition to the physical changes which occur with hair loss, children struggle with emotional, social and psychological side effects that need to be addressed. With our Medical Support Services, our families now have hope and help.
Every child in our program will be seen through our intake program to assess & evaluate their needs, so we may better serve them.
