World Cerebral Palsy Day – 6th October 2020
All the Team at MAES THERAPY wish everyone involved with World CP Day 2020 all the very best and hope that the lives of children and adults with Cerebral Palsy will be improved as a result of all the new projects initiated worldwide this year.
Although Cerebral Palsy (CP) is the most common physical disability in childhood, it is widely misunderstood. Through World CP Day, we have the opportunity to raise awareness of CP in our communities and assist others to look beyond the disability.
Through World CP Day we can build awareness of what CP is, how it’s caused, and how early detection and intervention is the key to improving outcomes for people with CP.
It’s a day to share what CP means to the individual, parents, siblings and family. It’s about creating awareness and celebrating people with CP. The Day aims to gather ideas from people with cerebral palsy and their supporters from around the world and make the best of those ideas a reality.
Celebrate the Potential on World Cerebral Palsy Day – because a Disability is no Handicap.
World Cerebral Palsy Day is a movement of people with cerebral palsy and their families, and the organisations that support them, in more than 65 countries.
The project is coordinated by the World Cerebral Palsy Initiative, a group of non-profit cerebral palsy organisations with a global vision to create real change for people living with CP.
Our vision is to ensure that children and adults with cerebral palsy (CP) have the same rights, access and opportunities as anyone else in our society. It is only together, that we can make that happen.
