Barrow Craniofacial Patient Raising Awareness in the Classroom
Sarah Woolworth, 21, has Treacher Collins syndrome and has been a patient at Barrow for most of her life. She visited a fifth-grade language arts class at Madison No. 1 Middle School in Phoenix to share her story of growing up with a craniofacial disorder.
The class had just finished reading “Wonder,” a novel about a fictitious boy with Treacher Collins syndrome who enters public school for the first time as a 10-year-old.
Program Coordinator Lori Takeuchi worked with the teacher of the class, Rae Dewberry, to develop a mini-curriculum that would introduce the students to craniofacial disorders and to Woolworth.
