Marion Stanton's book is an invaluable guide for all parents and guardians who are learning to care for a child with cerebral palsy. She highlights the positive experiences and emphasises the common parental wish to raise a bright, confident and happy child, whatever the obstacles. The book covers the early stages of cerebral palsy, choice of therapy and treatment, management of everyday life, education, informal support and social factors, legal rights and benefits, and planning for adulthood. There is also a fully updated and comprehensive reference section. With new research, changes in the benefits system and support networks, this will be a welcome and essential new edition.

Book Description:

A fully comprehensive and practical guide to an illness that one in every 400 children is born with

From the Back Cover:

A compassionate and comprehensive guide from one parent to others

One in every 400 children born in the UK has cerebral palsy. For Marion Stanton, it was a bewildering time when she was told her son's condition; she didn't know where to access information and had little idea what the future held. Her journey through the health, legal and education systems has been difficult and frustrating at times, but has also provided a wealth of knowledge that can now help others who are in the same situation.

The Cerebral Palsy Handbook offers clear and practical information for parents and carers. It covers:

- the early stages, when cerebral palsy is first diagnosed

- day-to-day care

- types of treatment available, including complementary therapies

- support networks

- school - and what next after school

- legal rights and benefits

Marion Stanton is a qualified special needs teacher and mother of three children. She has co-founded an early learning group for children with disabilities, and is an active member of the Alliance for Inclusive Education.
