Understanding Parental Views on the Early Experiences of Ambulatory Children with Spastic Cerebral Palsy

Start date: April 2022

Why: A lot of things influence when, where, and why parents find health care for their children. These reasons are not well understood in cerebral palsy. A better understanding of these things will help researchers design better studies in the future and improve the quality of care for others.

Who: We want to talk to parents of children who are:

  • diagnosed with spastic cerebral palsy
  • 4-8 years old
  • able to walk with or without assistive devices

The parent or caregiver must be able to speak and understand English.

What: Complete an online interview about your early experiences with the health care system. Your child does not need to be present.

Time: Approximately 1 hour

Compensation: $25 gift card

Benefit: You and your child may not directly benefit from participating in this study. However, other patients may benefit from what we learn.

Participation is voluntary.

If you have questions or would like to discuss this study prior to participation, contact the research coordinator, Maykala Owens.
