This summer’s study entitled The Effect of a Physical Therapy Program Targeting Lower Extremity Motor Control in Children with Cerebral Palsy was a big success. We thank all of our counselors, campers, parents and supporters who helped us make it happen. As our campers cheered at opening circle, “we are Camp Leg Power, the best camp in the west!”

The Center for Cerebral Palsy participates in research that meets our mission to understand the causes of movement disorders and assess the effectiveness of treatments in cerebral palsy. The Center is collaborating with the Cerebral Palsy Foundation (formally Cerebral Palsy International Research Foundation or CPRIF) on two projects.
One is a multi-site project to address the challenges that women with cerebral palsy face in obtaining quality women’s health care. The other project is in collaboration with University of Southern California’s Interactive Creative Technology Lab and Microsoft to develop methods for children with severe physical impairments to use their unique gestures s controller inputs for Kinect games.
