Spina Bifida Family Support was started surprisingly after
an IEP meeting during my son's 6th grade year. After asking
the teachers in attendance at the IEP meeting if there were
any other children within the school system with spina bifida,
besides my son, they began naming former students of theirs
personally. I had thought about starting a support group for
sometime, but this meeting was to be the catalyst to spear
head me into action. We have lived in the State of Indiana for
several years now and had not met one other family raising a
child with spina bifida.
Fortunately, we have now met other children and have begun
to spread the word in our local community of this support
group. My hopes are to not only meet these families and have
our children socialize with children that are also living with
spina bifida, but to be of support to each other and utilize
our experiences to assist one another in our endeavors to
raise healthy, happy and responsible children.
If you are interested in joining our support group, please
contact us. We'd love to have you and your family be a part of
this great group!
