The HIE Help Center is an informational website for the parents, grandparents and caregivers and loved ones of children with disabilities stemming from hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE). The site is sponsored by Reiter & Walsh ABC Law Centers, a law firm that focuses on assisting families impacted by HIE and other birth injuries.

The idea for the site developed when legal and medical team at ABC Law Centers noticed a common thread in the narratives of their clients – that it was very difficult and time-consuming to find information about their child’s diagnosis outside of a few select websites, which often required parents to make accounts or provide sensitive information they weren’t comfortable handing over. The HIE Help Center aims to be a useful one-stop information resource to help parents navigate disability resources without having to spend hours on dozens of different websites.
We hope to provide information and support to parents whose children have had a hypoxic-ischemic diagnosis and to provide resources in an informative, compassionate and supportive manner.
