Cerebral Palsy Research
Medical research into cerebral palsy causes, diagnosis, treatments and cures is ongoing and abundant. There are many national programs and foundations dedicated to pursuing the prevention and cure of cerebral palsy as well as improving the quality of life for children and individuals with cerebral palsy.
Major cerebral palsy research programs include:
Cerebral Palsy International Research Foundation
Center for Disease Control and Prevention
National Institutes of Health
Cerebral Palsy Research Foundation
American Academy for Cerebral Palsy & Developmental Medicine
Children's Neurobiological Solutions, Inc.
These cerebral palsy research programs focus on addressing several issues including factors that predispose the developing brain to injury and various treatments to counteract or even cure the effects of a brain injury.
Cerebral palsy research also leads to several important statistics. With over 550,000 individuals suffering the effects of cerebral palsy, this disorder has become the second most common developmental disorder, and continues to gradually increase. Nearly 10,000 new cerebral palsy cases occur each year; 70% of these cases occur prior to birth, 20% occur during the birthing process, and 10% occur during the first two years of life.
