My 15 year old daughter suffered a stoke at tender age of 14 months old and as a result she has hemiparesis on the left side of her body. Growing up she had to deal with a number of changes, therapies, doctors and the hardest of all, school. After years of battling bullies and ignorance we choose to homeschool for the remainder of her high school years, but as a mom I feel helpless. There are not many safe havens for teenager with mobility disabilities that will not only help them thru their struggles but to find that they are not the only ones going thru this. If any one out there knows of any support groups or camps where my beautiful teenager can find some kindred spirits to help her get thru this difficult years. We live in the treasure coast area in Florida.
