Neurosciences Family Support Group presents general topics for discussion that appeal to a wider variety of diagnoses, such as movement disorders. Following each monthly general presentation, families will break-out into smaller diagnosis-specific groups to discuss personal experiences, share their stories, and build an appropriate support network. We encourage and welcome caregivers of patients who want to learn more about their child's neural condition while navigating the overwhelming maze of difficult decisions. Together, we will explore options and create better outcomes.
Our support groups help families:
The Neurosciences Family Support Group is designed for patients (ages 0-18), their parents or caregivers, as well as siblings of all ages to attend.
Cook Children's hosts family support activities during the year. Support group meetings at the medical center include dinner, and sitters are available for children under the age of 6. Families will also have an opportunity to visit with one another and share resources with each other.
