    Good morning @dhirajprasadg
    Thanks for your post and welcome to our online community. I have found some information and groups local to you that might helpful Norfolk Community Healthcare and Each Support Group.
    I would speak to your G.P. or Paediatrician about the treatment options for your son. These might include:
    Physiotherapy
    Hydrotherapy (which is exercises in a heated swimming pool)
    We also have lots of information on the community such as Therapies and support from other Parents and Carers
    If I can help further please do let me know. :)

    Hi @dhirajprasadg
    We do not have such a list. 

    My understanding is that when it comes to stem cells being a possible, safe and reliable treatment for cerebral palsy, things are still very much at the research stage.  

    In my opinion, a good source of impartial advice about stem cell research is the EuroStemCell website:  

    They have a page specific to cp: 

    Personally, I would be confident that if there are any significant, peer-reviewed future breakthroughs with research EuroStemCell will publish about it.
