Find strategies to help your child adjust to physical limitations and to cope with JM as a family; 4. Understand treatment options and how health professionals track your child's progress; 5. Gain information on different aspects of JM, including long-term outcomes; and, 6. Discover a number of resources to assist you in the fight against your child's myositis.
