New Book Called “Smile for Me” Helps Explain Moebius Syndrome To Children

August 20, 2012

Organization: Many Faces of Moebius Syndrome

Smile for Me is a new book which helps to explain Moebius Syndrome to children. Moebius Syndrome is an extremely rare congenital neurological disorder.  Most people with Moebius syndrome are born with facial paralysis, which means they cannot close their eyes or form facial expressions. Limb and chest wall abnormalities sometimes occur with the syndrome. Most people with Moebius syndrome have normal intelligence, and others should take care not to confuse their lack of facial expression with dullness or unfriendliness.

Smile for Me is written by Linda Lawrance, a Moebius Mom living in Australia.  The book is narrated by Milton the Star, a character sure to engage all children. To learn more about this book, please visit us on the Many Faces of Moebius Syndrome.
