Make A Difference In The Lives Of Those With Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral Palsy is an umbrella term for a group of disorders that affects a person’s ability to move. It is a life-long physical disability due to injury to the developing brain. There is no single cause of the condition and it can be the result of a combination of events that happened within the pregnancy period or shortly after birth. Motor disability can range from minimal to severe, and people affected are likely to have other impairments.
Unfortunately, there is no cure.
In Australia alone, there are approximately 34,000 people with Cerebral Palsy, and every 15 hours, an Australian child is born with the condition. For most parents, it is understandably a daunting time when they receive a diagnosis for their child. They worry about their child’s quality of life and hope that they will have support so they can provide their child with the best care.
