Activist group All Party Parliamentary Group for Young Disabled People and charity consortium Action Cerebral Palsy, both out of the UK, have kick started a number of policy changes that could help as many as 30,000 children in the UK with cerebral palsy (CP). Outlined in the report “Enabling Potential—Achieving a New Deal for Children with Cerebral Palsy”, Action Cerebral Palsy recommends improved training for practitioners working with children with CP to earlier recognize their needs, such as physiotherapy. Pediatric physiotherapists work with children diagnosed with CP starting from birth to help them develop mobility and joint range, and encourage activity. Although this specialized type of therapy cannot cure CP, “early intervention improves outcomes,” says Elisabeth Gray, a pediatric physiotherapist and chair of Association of Pediatric Chartered Physiotherapists, stressing how children with CP should be evaluated and diagnosed early to help them achieve greater progress throughout their lives.
