Support for your age

We have matched the appropriate programs and services at every life stage

Services matched to your age and stage in life

Has your child been newly diagnosed with cerebral palsy? Do you want to be more independent, and explore home and living options either in long term accommodation or customised services within your own home?

Our approaches and guides can be used to support your conversations with funding agencies, support coordinators, service providers, and therapists. They will help make sure you get the right intervention at the right time.  

Most of these approaches are supported by our world-leading research and by neuroscience (which deals with the brain and how the nervous system develops). Importantly, each approach or program can be tailored to individual and family needs. 

To find out more about the services and programs for each stage, view our cerebral palsy treatment guides.
