If your child has just been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) or if she has a related condition, this is certainly a stressful time for your family. You are being given lots of new information and you probably have a long list of questions. All of the members of our team in the Pediatric Multiple Sclerosis and Related Disorders Program are here to help.

If your child has MS, we will give you a binder that contains information about the disease and resources at Boston Children’s and in the community. It also has lots of pages where you can store information about your child’s treatment and jot down notes and questions.

You may want to visit The Center for Families at Boston Children’s, which has several helpful books about MS.

The Center for Patients and Families website offers information on the wide array of support services available to families at Boston Children’s.

The websites of these organizations may also be helpful to you:
