The TeleCommunity offers individuals with spina bifida, their families, professionals and interested others a convenient, enjoyable way to learn and network via telephone conference call.

There is no need to travel, simply dial in from your home phone. Handout materials for special events are sent to participants in advance via email or US mail.

Telegroups are professionally facilitated common-interest support groups that generally meet once a month for an hour. Also guest speakers present workshops on topics of special interest to the groups.

Teleconferences are interactive workshops and seminars presented by experts in the field on a wide range of topics.

To learn how to participate in teleconferences go to Teleconference Instructions.

There is no charge to participate in Telegroups and Teleconferences. This service is available to SBRN families toll-free.
