Hello everyone, my name is Carrie. I am the mommy to two wonderful little boys. My youngest son was diagnosed with cerebral palsy a few weeks ago, he is only 5 months old. I look forward to being a part of your group, thank you!

    Hi @carrielafinier  - Welcome to the community, & thank you for sharing the photo of your gorgeous little boy! I used to work as a physio with young children with cerebral palsy a long time, so they always have a special place in my heart.
    You have come to the right place for knowledge about CP, so I'm sure you will receive both support & friendship here. Scope also have 'Navigate' which offers support to parents, which you may wish to look at. See: https://www.scope.org.uk/family-services/navigate/
    Please chat here any time; have a look around, & join in any discussions.

    What a handsome fella! You must be really proud. :smiley: Welcome to the community @carrielafinier. How are you getting on?

    I know @chiarieds has mentioned our free Navigate service above but I'm going to tag in @Kate_Scope to see if she can tell you any more about it.

    Hi carrie, what a gorgeous little boy. My 3 month old daughter is under neurology. Whilst we don’t yet have an official diagnosis, we expect that she has a type of cerebral palsy too.
