Hi! 

I'm Charlotte, an MSc Occupational Therapy student currently completing my dissertation on the transition from child to adult care for people with CP. 

I'm looking for participants aged 18-30 with Cerebral Palsy in the UK to answer an anonymous 15-minute survey about their experiences with OT and transitioning from paediatric services in the NHS. 

I really appreciate you taking the time and any survey responses will be a massive support! If you have any questions please get in contact 

Thank you!

    My son (25) fits your criteria but is not on this forum and as a student is a bit busy with exams at the moment so i don't think he'll have time anyway.  But I can tell you from my perspective as his health care co-ordinator (aka mother...) that there was no transition...once he got to 18 all regular input stopped and even though he has no speech and uses AAC plus needs a blended diet he has no SALT, no OT and only some ad hoc physio to advise his care/support team about suitable gym equipment and bikes!  Also as his support is now fully funded NHS Continuing healthcare he has no access to a Social Worker at all as NHS is expected to cover all bases if someone is fully CHC funded.... I am happy to  fill in the questionnaire but didn;t know if you'd want it "third party" or not.

    @forgoodnesssake Hi there, thanks so much for the comment, and so sorry that's been your son's experience - it's all too common at the moment and why research into this area is so essential! 

    On the first page of the survey, an option is provided for family/carer/friend to complete on behalf of the individual with CP for those unable to complete it themselves, as long as you have the consent of the individual 😊
