Meet, Jessie, Arianna, Mighty Matt and gorgeous Livian who all attend the world renown Cerebral Palsy Education Centre based right here in Melbourne. Like the awesome foursome above, all our kids receive specialised therapy commencing with our early intervention program which includes physio, speech and occupational therapy. Matt and Livian are examples of the success of this program as both have started prep this year in mainstream school where 90% of CPEC kids will graduate to.
As the majority of children born with CP are not intellectually impacted, rather it's their little bodies that don't function the way they should, they depend upon CPEC's world renowned therapists who will ensure that every child learns to communicate and many to become mobile.
Along with CP being more common than childhood cancer, hearing impairments and Down syndrome combined, it is also the most expensive disability in Australia. Your donation can help give a child a voice or even to walk, helping to totally transform the life of a child with Cerebral Palsy.
Good Luck for your Marathon Event and Thank you from all the kids at CPEC.
