A CPActive Online Event

Every baby born with cerebral palsy has a window of opportunity that makes a lifetime of difference. But in Australia, we’re missing it.

Every baby born is tested for hundreds of health conditions, but not for cerebral palsy. It’s the most common physical disability in childhood, yet across Australia the approach to diagnosis is just ‘wait and see’.

Treating cerebral palsy in those first few months of life has a massive impact on that child’s wellbeing for the rest of their life. Every baby deserves that chance, and every parent deserves to know how to help their child thrive.

Register now for the launch of our new  Window of Opportunity campaign at 7pm on Thursday 19th August. We’re calling on the Federal government to provide universal cerebral palsy screening for every baby born in Australia.

We’ll share stories and discuss how we can work together to create lasting change

Hope to see you there!
