Birth Injury Support Groups

Cerebral Palsy Support Groups

Living with cerebral palsy (CP) can be challenging for a family. Joining one of many cerebral palsy support groups can help. Other families dealing with CP can offer ideas, advice, support and resources.

Cerebral palsy support groups can assist a whole family, from parents to siblings to the disabled child. Joining cerebral palsy support groups–both online and in-person–can bring lifelong rewards.

By joining when your child is still young, you can develop relationships that may last over many years. When your child is a teen, cerebral palsy support groups can be a great place for them to get support and build a community.

Finding Support Groups

There are many cerebral palsy support groups available. If you don’t know where to start, United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) has listings for groups in every U.S. state and territory. You might also join an online support group like Daily Strength if there aren’t any local groups near you.

Advancements in therapies, medication and awareness, as well as cerebral palsy support groups, are helping people with cerebral palsy live more comfortable, independent and productive lives.
