The objective of Cerebral Palsy Guidance (CPG) is to provide readers with thoroughly-researched information on cerebral palsy and birth injuries, backed by scientific sources and experts in the medical and legal field.
CPG also serves as a vast source of information and outreach for families and communities who need tips and support when caring for a child with cerebral palsy. The information includes, in part, daily life tips, support group details, information on financial assistance, respite care details, and education options.

Cerebral Palsy Bloggers
CPG incorporates bloggers with cerebral palsy who can provide personal insights and candid stories on what it’s like living with the disorder. Although our cerebral palsy bloggers write from a personal perspective, they follow the same editorial standards as our professional writers.
As part of the editorial process, CPG’s team of physicians and nurse practitioners review and edit all medical-related articles to ensure an added layer of accuracy. All of our medical professionals are board-certified and have experience with cerebral palsy and birth injuries.

The CPG content editor performs a final “run-through” of each article before publication. The final run-through consists of checking each article for clarity, reader-friendly content, correct terminology and grammar, and adherence to CPG’s writing style.
