Child & Adolescent Brain Injury

Parent Support Groups

SDBIF wants you to know that you are not alone in facing the challenges associated with raising a child or adolescent with a TBI!   We are interested in starting a parent group to provide information on issues related to brain injury, offer strategies and techniques, and provide support as you navigate through this new and unfamiliar journey of raising a young person with a TBI.  Meeting other parents with similar challenges and frustrations as well as having the opportunity to share ideas, solutions, and hope for the future will help to empower everyone. Please call SDBIF to enquire about the status of parent group meetings.
