Cerebral Palsy Guidance was created to provide answers and assistance to parents of a child with cerebral palsy. Our goal is to reach as many members of the cerebral palsy community as possible, building up a network of support, as well as providing necessary assistance.
We cover cerebral palsy from all angles–from symptoms, causes, and treatment, to daily living information, such as communication and transitioning to adulthood articles.
Our information is provided by expert writers and is thoroughly researched and cited.
We are based out of Houston, Texas but provide assistance throughout the U.S.

In order to assist our visitors who have been victims of medical malpractice, CerebralPalsyGuidance.com has partnered with leading birth injury attorneys throughout the country. Attorney Robert Wharton is head of our legal department and is responsible for making sure families have access to the best possible legal representation.
For the entirety of Robertʼs legal career, his practice has focused on the exclusive representation of plaintiffs and their families–choosing never to represent or defend a corporation in that time. Robert chooses to focus on fighting for people that have been harmed as a result of a company or corporationʼs negligence and standing up for those that are unable to advocate for themselves.
Among his various awards and achievements, Robert has been selected multiple times as a “Super Lawyers – Rising Star”. He was also honored as a “Top 40 Under 40” lawyer by the National Trial Lawyers Association: “Membership into the Top 40 Under 40 is by invitation only and is extended exclusively to those individuals who exemplify superior qualifications, trial results, and leadership as a young trial lawyer.”
