Dear parents, 

You have just received a GRIN diagnosis for your child. Most likely, your doctors have told you that your child has a very rare condition and that unfortunately, there is not much knowledge on GRIN disorders yet. Right now, your head is probably spinning with questions and you do not know where to look for the answers. 

Here at GRIN Europe, you will find parents who know exactly what you are going through right now. At one point in time, we have all been in the situation you are in right now and we understand all the emotions you are going through. We all have GRIN children ourselves and have meanwhile found our way in caring for our children and so will you. We are here to provide emotional support and to provide you with the answers to your questions and the information about GRIN disorders that you are seeking. 

GRIN disorders are indeed rare and unfortunately, knowledge within the medical profession is often limited. Consequently, it is up to us parents to fight for our children. It is up to us to learn about GRIN disorders, about the symptoms, the therapies and the treatment options and to provide this knowledge to the doctors so that they can treat our children in the best way possible.

Please check out our Resources section in our website and feel free to reach out to us with any questions you might have. You are most certainly not alone in this, and we do have your back. Always.
