Cerebral Palsy Alliance
(formerly The Spastic Centre)
Every 15 hours an Australian child is born with cerebral palsy (CP). In fact, Australian children are three times more likely to be diagnosed with cerebral palsy than with cancer.
More children live with cerebral palsy than any other physical disability;
- 1 in 2 is in chronic pain
- 1 in 3 cannot walk
- 1 in 5 cannot talk
- 1 in 10 has a severe vision impairment
Cerebral Palsy Alliance is committed to enhancing the lives of people with cerebral palsy by offering a range of services such as speech pathology, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, conductive education, mobility equipment and mentoring programs for every stage of life. We provide vital services and equipment for more than 4,000 children and adults each year and also funds research for cerebral palsy prevention, cure and intervention.
Become part of our mission; help us to build better futures for people with cerebral palsy and their families.
