The course will outline the causes of cerebral palsy before, during and after birth and discuss the factors that increase the chances of the condition arising.

Participants will be introduced to the three main types of cerebral palsy – Spastic CP, Athetoid or Dyskinetic CP and Ataxic CP – and how it affects some, or all, of a person’s limbs.

  • Signs and symptoms
  • Diagnosis
  • Treatments and care plans
  • Medication
  • Feeding problems
  • Associated conditions
  • Periventricular leukomalacia (PVL)

Really appreciated TeeJay putting us at ease right from the beginning and encouraging us to ask questions as and when we wanted to. Time passed really quickly, I was afraid I might feel bored but there was never a dull moment! Everything was very useful.
