Children at a higher risk for Cerebral Palsy or children diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy within the age range of 4-13 months (corrected age) are being recruited for an Early Detection study.
For 3-months, two programs will be offered that may help babies with cerebral palsy move and use their arms more like other children at an early age. If you decide to participate, your participation may mean:

  • 6-week telehealth therapy program (with one in-person visit) with our occupational/physical therapist to learn simple exercises to help your baby use their weaker arm. Your baby would also wear a soft mitt on their stronger arm to help them use their weaker arm.
  • 6-week telehealth parent support program, (with one in-person visit) with our counselor to learn more about movement, how babies learn, and parenting tips specifically designed for your family.
  • Two to three total in-person visits to our lab space to complete assessments and answer questions about how your baby is growing
