Cerebral Palsy Society Research

The field of cerebral palsy research is an exciting one! New studies and developments are constantly evolving. We are learning how CP develops, how it affects individuals and what health and wellbeing looks like.

CP is an umbrella term for a wide variety of conditions and life experiences. Recently, researchers and clinicians have developed a greater understanding of the different levels and types and the needs of families and individuals.

This section of the website is designed to update members on the latest research developments and opportunities to participate in New Zealand studies. Please check back here regularly for updates on research topics such as medicinal cannabis and Selective dorsal rhizotomy.
