Archive for 'Financial Support'

Mar 12

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
