The Children with Challenges Yahoo Chat Group is an independently managed chat group for parents of children with challenges, professionals working with challenged populations, and adults with challenges. The group was initiated and is currently managed by a parent well versed in the benefits and dynamics of the Masgutova Method. We would like to thank her for her continued dedication to managing this group and acknowledge the admirable service she continues to provide in the ongoing management and moderation of this site. This group allows parents and professionals to share information regarding various children’s challenges, progress made, and general perspective regarding the method. Information shared in this chat group is from personal experience, and as such, is not controlled or managed in any regard by the Masgutova organization. It is important to remember that advice rendered by groups of this nature is not a substitute for medical advice. While we think it is essential that families and professionals are provided open forums such as this to share, learn, and network with each other, we encourage you to contact us directly if an informational need arises regarding the MNRI program or organization that is beyond the intended scope and purpose of this site.
Since the site originated to help provide families and professionals with general information regarding the Masgutova Method and organization, with approval from the site moderator, we have agreed to share basic membership criteria here.
