Infants and very young children with cerebral palsy need effective, early intervention to improve life outcomes and minimise secondary complications.
This report, from the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Cerebral Palsy, outlines several recommendations to improve early identification, intervention and pathways of care of infants and young children with cerebral palsy.
The report also looks at:
- Identification, and the Role of Health Visitors
- Referral pathways
- Pathways of care
- Support for families
- Better data collection and a National Cerebral Palsy Register
- Examples of best practice.
