The ED Christmas Party is making a Comeback!!

We are so pleased to announce that on 7th December 2019 our ED Christmas Party will be back after a 2 year break!  We are so excited to begin planning and look forward to seeing so many of you again!  More details will follow in the next few months!  But for now – SAVE THE DATE!! 

December 2018 –  Research, we need your help!

Researchers from the Centre for Appearance Research at UWE Bristol are running an online research survey for UK-based adults (18+) who have a visible difference, for example due to ED. The study is concerned with how much looks affect the way people live, and will help inform psychological support available to people with appearance-affecting conditions. It takes about 20 minutes, and participants can enter a draw for one of ten ₤10 Amazon vouchers. Take the survey here:  https://tinyurl.com/looks-and-life

ED books –

We are very proud to have produced two books about Ectodermal Dysplasia; “Everybody’s Different” and “A Guide to Ectodermal Dysplasia”.

Everybody’s Different is an introduction to Ectodermal Dysplasia which has been designed for children aged 4+, whether they are affected by ED or not, and allows parents and schools to explain the condition in child-friendly terms.

A Guide to Ectodermal Dysplasia is an extensive 48-page booklet of information about ED for individuals, parents, families, medical professionals and other community officials in the UK.

Please have a look in our Shop for more information and how to buy.

We are very fortunate to have members who wish to share their stories and ED journeys with us, either by writing articles for our newsletters or writing their own blogs!  Head over to our Parents page to have a read and hopefully find some extra reassurance and support that you are not alone!
