Most of the attention in a life with cerebral palsy is on the children, but parents need an abundance of support and resources as well. That’s why we created CParents! This CPATH program provides educational resources to parents and caregivers, as well as an opportunity to connect, build relationships, and learn in a supportive environment.
We hold many workshops which include adults with CP sharing their inspiring stories and successes, local doctors presenting advanced research for cerebral palsy, family psychologists, massage therapists, orthopedists, financial experts for special needs trusts, and more. These Q&A forums allows parents to have dialogues with the experts as well as one another. Information gathering, sharing, and building a community is what we do at CParents!
NEW at CParents!!!
We’ve recently teamed up with the SW Family YMCA to offer parents and caregivers respite day opportunities. Children with CP or similar neuro motor diagnosis ages 4-21 enjoy adaptive games, recreation, music, and friendship building, and more while adults are able to enjoy some much needed free time! The best place to learn of our respite dates is through our Facebook page and the also calendar of the right side of this website.
We are always seeking opportunities to share information with the central Texas CP community, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with possible speakers and/or events.
I’m appreciative of the workshops because in our busy lives it’s more beneficial to learn from others in person than reading it on the Internet.
