As a parent, you want to do the best for your child. Raising a child with challenges is never easy. Many families are overwhelmed by the financial and emotional stress of what it may mean to give their children the most opportunities possible.

Advice And Support For Cerebral Palsy Families
Among the causes of cerebral palsy is birth injury or trauma during delivery. Sometimes, lack of oxygen when the baby is being born can cause significant and permanent effects. There are different types of cerebral palsy, including spastic, ataxic and athetoid, as well as mixed cerebral palsy that has elements of all of these. People living with cerebral palsy can have varying degrees and types of motor impairment.
Parents may receive a diagnosis shortly after their child's birth, or it may take some time for symptoms to become apparent. In many cases, parents are not told what happened to cause the condition.
