Facing neurological disorders can feel overwhelming at times. The Neuro Support Group offers patients and families a place where they can share frustrations and fears, learn new coping skills, and know that they do not have to face these challenges alone.
The Cook Children's Neuro Support Group is open to patients and families of children and teens with movement disorders, such as dystonia muscular dystrophy, etc., and those with acquired neuro challenges, including stroke, multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injury, etc. In addition, caregivers and professionals from Cook Children's are on hand to introduce topics and offer ongoing support. We are committed to giving patients and families:
Each meeting begins with a professional presentation on a specific topic. The group then divides into two break-out sessions: motor and cognitive, to discuss how the topic relates on a more specific level. This provides patients and family members an opportunity to share ideas and discuss particular challenges they may be facing as it relates to the topic. There is also an opportunity to visit and to build a community where people understand each other's daily obstacles, triumphs, hardships, and joys.
All meetings are free and include a light dinner. Sitters are available for children under the age of six at no additional charge.
The Neuro Support Group meets once every three months, including an end-of-the year holiday celebration. Meetings are from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.
