cerebral palsy (CP) share many of the social and
emotional concerns of others the same age, such as wanting to fit in with peers
and develop friendships.
Help support your child with CP by being aware of and understanding
these concerns. Although you will not be able to solve all the difficulties for
your child, your efforts can have a lasting and positive impact.
Talk to your doctor about support groups and other resources that can help you handle your child's concerns.
