When a Child is Diagnosed

Resources for Families

When a child is diagnosed with dystonia, parents may not know where to turn. The process of diagnosis and coping with symptoms can be overwhelming.

There are resources available to help you:

Locate your nearest dystonia support group.
► Consider joining the DMRF group Support4Parents of Children with Dystonia on Facebook.
► Get acquainted with additional online resources.
Consider attending a DMRF event.
► The DMRF can individually match you with families with similar diagnoses, in your area of the country, and/or with children similar in age.
