SBA’s National Resource Center on Spina Bifida (NRC) provides high quality, confidential information and referral services. Every year the NRC responds to as many as 10,000 questions about health care, education, employment, benefits, and more.

The NRC is the only clearinghouse of information exclusively dedicated to Spina Bifida. The NRC can help:

  • Find the closest SBA Chapter or Spina Bifida clinic
  • Locate support resources in your area
  • Help facilitate your questions and answers through our Ask the Expert feature
  • And much more!

Whether you are an adult living with Spina Bifida, the parent of a child with Spina Bifida, or just found out that the baby you are carrying has Spina Bifida, the NRC is here to help. To access the NRC, simply submit a question using our Ask the Expert online form, send an email to, or call 800-621-3141, ext. 35. Ofrecemos apoyo en español.
