Journey with us!

We’re about to embark on an incredible journey; a road less traveled that has challenges, and rewards. The act of choosing paths – or navigating the one that’s been determined by unforeseen events – is one that journeys best with options, and resources.

MyChild™’s aim is to offer information about cerebral palsy, connect individuals with helpful resources, as well as offer unlimited support. It’s not the journey you expected, that’s a given. But, at times we find it pretty amazing, nonetheless. Come join us, today!

Await Diagnosis
for Cerebral Palsy

HOPE

A parent may be concerned about developmental delays or a doctor may observe a sign outside of growth norms. There is no definitive test for cerebral palsy, causing doctors to diagnose over time. For parents that suspect a child may have cerebral palsy, the long wait between that initial suspicion and an official diagnosis can be an emotional one. But, what is often a time of anxiety evolves into an empowering experience that leads to acceptance and unconditional love.

Recent Diagnosis
with Cerebral Palsy

HELP

Many parents find it difficult to explain their emotions and thoughts at the time they receive their child’s diagnosis, and for the years ahead. That’s understandable. It’s a life-altering moment often filled with feelings of sadness, helplessness, shock, anxiety, disbelief, and confusion. But, that gives way to strength, joy, tolerance, and triumphs. It may not be the expected journey we had for our children, but it is a beautiful journey, nonetheless.

MANAGE

There’s an adage that knowledge is power. This is certainly a truism, but something a parent may not consider – information can be a source of comfort. When a child is diagnosed with cerebral palsy, there’s an immense amount of information parents must absorb. The first among these is to have a clear understanding of a child’s condition, which aids in coordinating care, applying for government assistance, seeking early intervention, and obtaining support.

Maximize Potential
with Cerebral Palsy

MAXIMIZE

There is evidence that children with cerebral palsy far exceed initial assessments. Children that physicians have once said would never walk have not only put one foot in front of the other, they’ve climbed mountains. Others that were never expected to communicate have spoken, written books, and inspired others with words of wisdom. Even in severe forms of cerebral palsy a child’s potential can materialize making possible the aspirations that parents have for their child’s future.

Transition into Adulthood with Cerebral Palsy

TRANSITION

Like all young people, children with cerebral palsy face many transitions. But, how these stages of growth and development take place can involve developing confidence and helping them cope, to preparing them for independent living and instilling life skills. Help your child prepare for adulthood.

Adults
with Cerebral Palsy

MATURE

Adults with cerebral palsy often face a number of choices as they grow into adulthood, and their ability to adapt and adjust to change is something that is cultivated by a series of interventions when they are young. If a child is properly prepared, he or she can lead a life that is rewarding, joyful, and productive.

Severe Outcome
with Cerebral Palsy

SUPPORT

There’s never a better time to begin researching what resources might be available to a family than when a child is diagnosed with a severe form of cerebral palsy. Finding the right set of supports is often what makes possible the best outcome for a child, and encouragement for parents.

Help Others
with Cerebral Palsy

ASSIST

Every now and then, we all need a little support. Sometimes, we feel like there’s nothing that we can do that’s helpful. Assisting doesn’t necessarily mean a long-term commitment or the expenditure of money. With a little effort, and the use of our own skills, there’s always a meaningful way to help.
