Cerebral Palsy Support and Information
Cerebral palsy (CP) is not a disease or an illness; it is a physical impairment that affects movement and co-ordination. The severity of the restrictions caused by Cerebral palsy vary greatly from person to person from barely being noticeable to extremely severe. No two people with cerebral palsy are the same, however, most children will live long into adulthood with many living for several decades.
The section of ABLEize is designed to offer you greater information and contacts with various cerebral palsy websites, societies and organisations mostly throughout the UK but may contain world wide sites of cerebral palsy interest along with CP symptoms details, causes, official diagnosis and treatment information.
ABLEize supplies you with a whole range of disability information and resources and does this free, if you found this section useful please pass the page details on to others so they can also benefit. If you know of a useful CP site not listed here please feel free to send us the details and we will look at getting it included.
