Cerebral Palsy Help Center

Our Cerebral Palsy Help Center will be regularly updated with accurate, beneficial information for parents of children with Cerebral Palsy.  We’ve included everything from “What is Cerebral Palsy” , and “Can Stem Cells help my child?”, to “Where can I find cute shoes that fit over my child’s AFO’s?“.

Our goal is to be a comprehensive Cerebral Palsy parent resource of accurate information and educational material available.  The information and resources listed here is RFTS parent and medical advisory board “approved” so you can have confidence we won’t include any harmful or misleading information.
