Cerebral palsy (CP) can affect a child’s muscle tone, movement and speech. Some children might walk a little awkwardly but don’t need special help. Others benefit from technology and assistive devices to help them move and communicate. At Nemours Children's, our orthopedic surgeons, neurologists and other CP specialists are experts in diagnosing cerebral palsy in children. We’re here to help kids with CP from the start — and keep them thriving as they grow.
Families come to Nemours because of our national reputation for diagnosing and treating all types of cerebral palsy in children. We’re known for providing excellent care and warm, personal attention. And, year after year, members of our CP team are recognized as "Best Doctors in America®."
Kids with CP grow and do their best when the whole family takes part in the child’s development and care. That’s why we include parents and other family members in your child’s treatment plans. Families also choose Nemours because we’re always looking for better ways to diagnose and care for conditions like CP. We stay on the leading edge of research, and are actively involved in studies and clinical trials.
