Links

The following list contains links to web resources that may be useful to our patients and families. We have had the opportunity to review most of these sites and believe that they offer important and useful information. Most of the sites are directed to parents of children with specific problems but some of the sites are set up to be used by children. Some of these links are to sites with a primary purpose of marketing a product and associated with that marketing they have included additional specific and general information that we observe to be beneficial and not easily obtained elsewhere. We do not and are not promoting any product and we do not have any commercial interest in any product. Our standard to be included in this list is that the product does not appear to be dangerous or detrimental and may be of value for specific individuals and that the site has valuable additional information.
