Local Groups Team

In person support is extrememly valuable for families of children who have have a diagnosis of hemiplegia. Families often report that they feel very isoloated and while friends and familiy try to understand, there is nothing better than meeting another family who is going through a similar situation. Families and children who have friends who are experiencing similar challenges report reduced levels of stress and a feeling that they are not alone.  Local groups are one of CHASA’s most important outreach programs.
