NINDS/NICHD Cerebral Palsy Workshop

Cerebral Palsy, the most common cause of childhood disability, arises as a consequence of abnormal neurodevelopment or prenatal/perinatal injury to the parts of the brain involved in controlling movement.  In the past, delayed diagnosis of cerebral palsy precluded timely delivery of therapeutic interventions early in life, the period in which treatment may be most effective for neurodevelopmental disorders.  However, even with advances that have enabled earlier diagnosis of cerebral palsy, treatment options remain limited.  To help address these challenges facing patients, clinicians, and researchers, the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Development (NICHD) and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) held two prior workshops that informed the development of a Strategic Plan for Cerebral Palsy. This workshop will take place August 17-18, 2022.
