A new diagnosis of cerebral palsy for your child can be overwhelming. Or as an adult going through changes and transitions with CP can be confounding. We are here to help. Not only do we have a wealth of information about life with cerebral palsy on our website and in our toolkits, but can offer you a personal path through this wealth of information so you don’t feel so overwhelmed. Sign up for MyCP and get personalized recommendations for all of our web content — tailored for you — for your age, stage and type of cerebral palsy.
One example is the Gross Motor Function Classification System or GMFCS. Learning about this important classification is integral to understanding your potential life course and services you may need. If you are a parent of a newly diagnosed child, we offer you resources to learn about this essential measure and how it help you support your loved one.
If you are an adult, we will direct you to essential resources that will help you navigate life with CP as you head into the workforce, transition to retirement or need to collect disability.
