At Tyrone Law Firm, we do everything we can to help families who have children with special needs. In fact, we have dedicated members of our staff who have had to navigate a path for their own children. If you are a parent with a child with Cerebral Palsy or hypoxic brain injury, we hope these posts will bring new resources for you, your child, and your family:
Babies do not come with manuals and sometimes, it is hard to know where to look to find the right resources to care for your baby. If you are the parent of a baby or child with Cerebral Palsy or a brain injury, it is even harder to know where to turn. These babies require more attention and care. Having the input from other families and professionals who have already had to navigate the system, is beneficial and can help relieve the stress of searching for new resources.
MyChild™, at cerebralpalsy.org, is an informational website, owned by Attorney Kenneth Stern. It is the vision of MyChild™, “to provide those touched by cerebral palsy with the most compassionate voice, the most comprehensive resource, and the ultimate industry support network.” They offer support through their website, call center and on Facebook. Mr. Stern strives to have the website easily accessible to everyone, ensuring that all families are able to navigate and find the support they need.
MyChild™, believes that “knowledge is power.” When families have information and resources readily available to them, their child benefits. MyChild™, provides all of the information needed to make educated decisions for health, education, wellness and more. The website doesn’t only provide informational resources, there are success stories, which provide encouragement and hope for families. Seeing other people overcome their obstacles gives families the strength they need to keep going.
Children with Cerebral Palsy, often need therapists, medical providers and more, to ensure they have the highest quality of life possible. MyChild™, can help families build their team. They offer well organized-information, making it easier on families to navigate. Family members of children with Cerebral Palsy and other special needs often need support of their own and MyChild™, offers this through their call center.
