About MyChild™

As a comprehensive resource for everything related to cerebral palsy, MyChild™ provides information, tips, resources, encouragement and inspiration to individuals touched by cerebral palsy.

Most parents today are so busy with medical appointments, family obligations, and work that it can be difficult, if not impossible, to spend hours looking for resources. MyChild™’s comprehensive website is designed as a one-stop destination for information about information, resources, inspiration and sources of support. The information is on one website for easy, time-sensitive access day or night. And, when you have questions, our call center representatives are available to assist.

Finding the resources and support can seem overwhelming and cumbersome. MyChild™ hopes to connect you with the information you need, when you need it. We enjoy hearing from our families, so please feel comfortable in calling our call center at .
