Cerebral Palsy is a motor disorder that appears in children before the age of 3. The condition is generally believed to be caused by damage or trauma to the brain before it is has fully developed. Cerebral Palsy cannot be cured. It is a lifelong condition and is a non-progressive disorder meaning that it will not get worse over time. For the child with Cerebral Palsy, as with any child, care and love will be part of a nurturing  environment, but the child with Cerebral Palsy will need these in addition to many other forms of support within and beyond their family.

Families with a family member with conditions such as Cerebral Palsy usually want the best for their family member (often a child). If you are a parent of a child with Cerebral Palsy, you probably want your child to feel as unaffected as possible, and to do that, you may need the necessary accessories and equipment that will suit your child’s special needs. For example, if you child has difficulty  clearly communicating verbally due to neuromuscular problems with their mouths and pharynx, there are a number of electronic and computer aids which can "speak" for them with family, schoolmates, peers, and caregivers. As research has progressed and the conditions related to Cerebral Palsy have become more understood, devises such as wheelchairs, scooters, seating aids, and braces have been developed to help the child function to their best of their ability. Taking into consideration the severity of their Cerebral Palsy, they can achieve more independence than was possible in the not too recent past. For the younger set who are eager to go outside and play with their peers, an adaptive tricycle may give them a chance to not be "left behind".

Always consult with the physiatrist, physical therapist, occupational therapist, and others on your family member's team to get their input and suggestions for adaptive equipment. They have years of experience with different kinds and manufacturers of equipment and can guide you as you try to decide which accessories and devises will be the most helpful.
