As a parent, you want to create the best life for your child. When you receive a diagnosis of cerebral palsy (CP), you may feel like you do not have the information and resources you need to build and support your child's future. As a member of the CP community, you should know you are among many CP families in British Columbia and Alberta that have the same desire for their children that you have for your child. You can put your family first.
Answering Your Important Questions
When your child is diagnosed with CP, you will have many real concerns. This will include who will give your child the proper care and support he or she deserves, now and for the long term. You may have to balance financial pressures with care of other children and other dependant family members.
You may also want to know how this happened. You may wonder if you could have prevented your child's condition. As a parent, you are not at fault. As a loving caregiver to your child, you have the right to information, about what caused the condition and how you can take positive steps for your family's future. The professionals at Campbell, Renaud in Vancouver (Burnaby) can help you find the answers you seek.
Linking To The CP Community
CP families are some of the best resources for information, socialization and support for children with CP and their parents. The cerebral palsy community includes families who are currently creating a positive life for their children and families who are just receiving a CP diagnosis and learning what it means for them and their children. Families receiving care through child development centres often find they have a common experience both in their home lives and in the medical system.
Finding The Root Cause And Moving Forward
Many parents struggle to receive a full explanation of what happened to cause their child's CP. While the cause may be rooted in genetics or similar factors, in many cases the onset of CP can be attributed to the failure of medical professionals to meet the standards of practice expected of them. We can help you to understand the symptoms of CP and birth injury, and advise you on steps we can take to help you secure the best future for your child.
