Archives of the Hemi-Kids List Messages

The archives of our Hemi-Kids e-mail list contain messages from parents of children who have hemiplegia or Kids Have Strokes.  Examples of topics discussed include:  hemiplegia, hemiparesis, hemiplegic cerebral palsy, cerebral palsy, intrauterine stroke, in utero stroke, infant stroke and childhood stroke.  Parents also discussion issues like special education, physical or occupational therapy, alternative therapies, speech therapy, surgery, learning differences, coping with being your child's "case manager", epilepsy, medications, and much more.

You can search the archives for material from old email messages if you are a current member of the Hemi-Kids list.  To join the Hemi-Kids list go to this page.  

You can read the messages in the archives by month, with a table of contents for each month, or you can search the archives for specific information.

You will have a known login sequence. If you click the "login and save my password in a cookie button", you will not need to repeat the above process. 


Once you're in the archives, it's pretty user friendly. You can search the archives for a topic.  Or, you can just choose a month and read that month's messages.  Once you have entered a month, there are a variety of ways to organize the messages - just scroll over and click on one of the icons at the top of the page.


1. The server sends out digest mail every night at midnight EST for approximately an hour. You will not be able to access the archives during this time.

2. Your Hemi-Kids List email address must match the email you're typing into the archive page.  Make sure that you are using the email address with which you are subscribed to the list.  If you use a free web based email account like Yahoo or Hotmail for list email, make sure to use that address, not your regular ISP email address. 

3. Your ISP may be altering its domain name on sending and receiving emails. For example, some addresses are sent out as WORLDNET.ATT.NET. If this is the case, the list coordinator will need to subscribe you under both addresses and set one to no mail. 

4. If none of the above seem to be the problem and you continue to have difficulty accessing the archives, contact the list coordinator. Her email address is on the bottom of the HK messages.
