March is National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month, and we're kicking things off by sharing a new video about the condition (watch it below). We hope it helps families understand the definition, causes and symptoms of cerebral palsy (CP) in children. The video explains the different types of cerebral palsy, such as spastic cerebral palsy, diplegic cerebral palsy, hemiplegic cerebral palsy, dyskinectic cerebral palsy and ataxic cerebral palsy. Gillette specialists also talk about how they help parents understand their child’s CP diagnosis and what the future might hold for their child. Seeking more resources about CP? Visit our Cerebral Palsy Awareness webpage for infographics, social media downloads, and to dowload our Emojability app!
