Welcome: You have come upon a blog whose focus is primarily offering tools for dyslexics and hyperlexics. I have both conditions. The material is also germane for parents and therapists. The topic, this time, is financial support. Occasionally I come across names of institutions or individuals who offer financial support. I will update this list as I discovered more information.
Danielle’s Foundation is a comprehensive support and resource center for parents, caregivers, and loved ones of children with cerebral palsy and brain injury. Recently they have annouced a grant program. The first deadline has been extended to April 7th, 2010.
Here is what their press announcement states:
In keeping with our mission to help parents of children with cerebral palsy and brain injury get the care their children desperately need, we have developed a grant program to assist deserving families in getting the necessary therapy/ medical equipment for their children (which insurance has either denied or will not cover).
Our grants are based on need and will be given out on a quarterly basis. Each grant will range from $2,000-$5,000.
To apply your child MUST be under 18 years old, have a diagnosis of cerebral palsy or brain injury, and need assistance in getting therapy or medical equipment. For more information and to receive a grant application please call our toll free hotline 1-800-996-1148 or
