New! A Guide for Educators
In July 2022, The Moebius Syndrome Foundation produced a new guide specifically to help educators and school staff better understand and support their new students with Moebius syndrome. This guide is available for download and can be emailed, or if you live in the United States, you can request that a physical copy be mailed to you.
New! Moebius Passalong Cards
These easy-to-carry cards are available to print out and share at school or in the grocery store. These give a brief introduction to Moebius syndrome for those that have questions. We suggest downloading the link underneath the photos and saving the design you like best, then sending it to your favorite printer to make business card sizes (ex. Vista Print and Canva are popular printers). Each card has a description of Moebius syndrome on the backside.
