Children’s Hemiplegia and Stroke Association (CHASA)
" CHASA is first international non-profit organization to offer information and support to families of infants, children, and young adults who have hemiplegia or hemiplegic cerebral palsy, often due to perinatal stroke, childhood stroke, or other rare causes.
HemiKids is an online discussion group where you can meet other parents of children who have hemiplegia, hemiparesis, or hemiplegic cerebral palsy. With over 1800 families, you'll find others who understand the joys and challenges of raising a child with hemiplegia. We talk about many issues – why our child had a stroke (many of us still don't know), how to find the best therapies, ways to help our children learn to dress independently, ideas for working with teachers and school systems, and more. Most of all, you'll find parents who understand what you're going through. You do not have to be alone.
For the past 15 years, CHASA has recognized the need for information and support for families of children with hemiplegia due to pediatric stroke or other causes. CHASA provides an opportunity for families throughout the world to network and support each other through local meetings, online discussion groups, and educational websites. Families travel from as far away as Australia and Singapore to attend our annual family retreats. CHASA currently serves over 2000 families worldwide. "
