Resources for Parents
This section of the APSA Web site is designed to provide general educational information to parents and other caregivers who are coping with their child's illness, injury or pending surgical procedure.
If you're not sure what the condition is, use the search engine to search these articles for information that may relate to your child's condition. You can be as general or as specific as you want, i.e. "neck" or "cystic hygroma", depending on the amount of information you have already acquired from your child's pediatrician or a pediatric surgeon.
