Welcome to the International Alliance for Pediatric Stroke!
May is Stroke Awareness Month
Stroke is an emergency at ANY age! All too often, the signs of stroke in children and teens are missed by families or are delayed or misdiagnosed by clinicians and emergency medical staff because of a lack of information. With this year's Pediatric Stroke Awareness Campaign, we can begin to change that with your help!
Be the first to share these NEW pediatric stroke fact sheets! The International Alliance for Pediatric Stroke
partnered with the American Heart Association
to create these just in time for May. Please share and distribute them widely! These are also available in Spanish on our Publications page
A stroke can happen to anyone at any age, including babies, children, teens, and even before birth. Unfortunately, there is very little information, support, and research for this population. The International Alliance for Pediatric Stroke (IAPS) was created to bring together global pediatric stroke communities, uniting in a common effort to advance knowledge, awareness and research for these children.
IAPS’s grassroots efforts are already making a difference, but we have a long way to go. Your support through donations and raising awareness are greatly appreciated! Check out our How You Can Help
page to find easy ways you can make a difference for children who have been impacted by stroke. Sign up for our newsletter
to stay up-to-date on the latest information about strokes in children.
Our mission is proudly supported by leading pediatric neurologists and all of our information is approved by the physicians on our board. Our website provides extensive, comprehensive, and reliable resources for pediatric stroke. You can Get the Facts
, share our Fact Sheet
, connect with other organizations
, get access to many publications
and much, much more.
IAPS welcomes your comments, suggestions and questions. Please join us on this mission! We want to hear from you, so if you need help navigating the uncharted path of your pediatric stroke journey, contact
us. Together we will make a difference for all
children who are impacted by strokes!
