Cerebral palsy is the most common cause of physical disability in children worldwide, and yet in most low resource settings there are few services available to support children with cerebral palsy or their families. “Getting to know cerebral palsy” is a training resource for facilitators, parents, caregivers, and persons with cerebral palsy. It aims to increase knowledge and skills in caring for a child with cerebral palsy. It promotes a participatory learning approach with an emphasis on working with groups and the empowerment of parents and caregivers.
