To explore parents’ perspectives on the rehabilitation of their child with cerebral palsy and their information needs.
Shapers Charitable Trust offers a wide range of rehabilitative treatments for children with cerebral palsy, a neuromuscular disorder that interferes with movement, muscle coordination, and gait.
Intensive rehabilitative treatments often begin during early childhood and are designed to improve muscle control, manage spasticity, and help your child develop confidence. Some children continue to work with physical and occupational therapists through adulthood.
At Shapers Charitable Trust, all aspects of your child’s rehabilitative care are coordinated by a physiatrist, which is a doctor who specializes in rehabilitation medicine. This centralized approach makes scheduling treatment simpler for parents, and it ensures that information about your child’s treatment is shared among experts and can be easily explained.
