What a world we live in! Who would've thought there'd be a way to communicate with and gain support from/to people throughout the world! The development and maintenance of this site is to be highly commended! May the Ribono Shel Olam grant you continued hatzlacha and siyata dishmaya!

I am looking for support on the topic of TBI. would you be kind enough and able to add this topic to your categories?
Oh, and let me specify, I'm refering to PEDIATRIC TBI. I've been searching for a site as such for a loooong time.

I don't know about the prevalence of TBI in our frum communities; if anyone has info on any other online support group for pediatric tbi I'd appreciate hearing from you. (Child born ok, suffered tbi a few years down the road; life's not been the same since.....)

Thank You,
az

Hi,

Thank you for your kind words!

You can find TBI under the Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation section. Feel free to start a new topic there as there might be others out there waiting for someone to start the discussion.

Best,
Admin
