As part of my role with the CP Association, I will be helping to promote and enhance our Parent Support Group.
The Cerebral Palsy Association of Newfoundland and Labrador offers a support group that gives parents the chance to meet and share their knowledge and experiences with others facing similar challenges.
As a parent of a child with special needs myself, I know how important it is to connect with others who can relate to what you are going through. No one truly understands the physical, emotional, social and practical challenges of parenting a child with a disability better than another parent.
Every child is a gift, but raising a child with cerebral palsy is a unique responsibility. Through our support group we socialize, share ideas and insights, and offer support to other families raising children with CP and similar disabilities.
CPANL is putting together a new network and database to connect our families - please help us!
If you are interested in finding out more about our Parent Support Group, or if you would like to be added to our list, please send a quick email with some brief information about your family to: firstname.lastname@example.org (All information entered is kept confidential, and is not posted publicly).
