Like any other parent, you will want to ensure that your child receives a full and well-rounded education.

For instance, before your child even begins his or her education and throughout his or her academic career, he or she must have the necessary evaluations performed to measure his or her aptitude and where he or she will be best suited. You will also need to know about Individualized Family Service Plans, Individualized Educational Plans, and Individualized Habilitation Plans and how you can make sure that these plans are best suited for your child’s needs.

At some point, you will need to make a decision about whether or not you want your child to attend a Special Education school, or a regular, or mainstream, school. And of course, you must be well-versed in the legal matters that affect you child and his or her right to an education, set forth primarily by the Individuals with Disabilities Act. All of these issues regarding cerebral palsy and education will be covered in the following section.
