Newly Diagnosed with Hemiplegia or Perinatal Stroke

What do I do next? The first year after you’re told that your child has a brain injury is a whirlwind of tests, therapies, doctors, therapists, insurance, and the many emotions that you go through. You didn’t expect this, right?

CHASA is an organization run by moms just like you. We’ve been there and are still on this journey. Some of us have children who are adults and we’re a little further down the path. You are not alone.

Our Newly Diagnosed Section will help you find your way. Our What Do I Do Next page lists steps for finding ways to help you find the resources and support you’ll need to make this first year a time where you can focus more on those sweet baby smiles and less on your child’s diagnosis.
