Mission
Craniosynostosis And Positional Plagiocephaly Support, better known as CAPPS, is dedicated to providing support, raising awareness, educating medical professionals and families and to provide access to treatment options, specialists and other families that have been in your shoes. CAPPS' primary objective is to provide the information necessary for all families to make an informed decision regarding the care and treatment of their child.
Program Description

Of our many our many objectives, our primary goal is to raise awareness through education. Although these two conditions are very different in cause, in many cases they have a similar outward appearance, which causes many mis-diagnoses. By educating the HealthCare community and general public, we will be able to reduce the amount of mis-diagnoses and children will get the appropriate treatment for their condition without losing valuable time.

Our secondary goal is to offer support to families that have a child with either condition. The staff of CAPPS is always available to help families with information and emotional support. We are also able to put families in contact with each other, so they can share information and their experiences and offer emotional support to one another.
