Cerebral Palsy is a significant diagnosis that comes with a wide assortment of related conditions. Whether an individual is facing a lifetime of required care and assistance, or lives with only minimal challenges, anyone diagnosed with CP tackles an assortment of difficulties each day. Accessing quality Cerebral Palsy information can be far too difficult, both due to misinformation in the public mainstream, and simply due to Google being inundated with incomplete, often incorrect, information.
MyChild was created to help children with Cerebral Palsy. This mission is not due to any lack of concern for adults with CP but, instead, due to an understanding of the importance of early intervention. Sadly, a thorough review of the internet will reveal that early intervention information in relation to Cerebral Palsy is difficult to find as there are simply too many mentions and too many results to easily find what you are looking for. Given the fact that children who are able to access critical therapy and care after their diagnosis have the best chance to reach their full potential, being able to access critical services is one of the most important components to caring for a child with Cerebral Palsy.
Our organization works hard to research and develop resources, including Cerebral Palsy information and resources, that can better help the public. Our website, which will be updated soon, already includes a wealth of Cerebral Palsy information aimed at educating parents, adults with CP and advocates on the complexities associated with this condition. We strongly believe that advances in research, technology and acceptance can only come about with a wider understanding of Cerebral Palsy as a condition and by parents having immediate access critical resources.
Not all of our resources are focused exclusively on medical information; our Cerebral Palsy information also includes fun options as well. Our recent Summer Guide to Cerebral Palsy, available as a simple, FREE download from our Facebook, is aimed at helping children with Cerebral Palsy have a fun and exciting warm weather season. What’s more, it also includes information for parents of children with Cerebral Palsy interested in starting a blog, connecting with other special needs parents and more.
It’s important to note that if you’re a parent of a child with Cerebral Palsy and looking to connect with other parents like you, don’t hesitate to check out our Facebook Page. Updated more than three times a day with Cerebral Palsy information relevant to adults, advocates and families touched by CP, our Page is aimed as a comfortable, valuable resource for those looking to help a child reach their potential.
