Social participation of people living with a
physical deficiency has been a key focal point of our rehabilitation
interventions for the past several years.

In order for them to achieve this, they must be provided with the
possibility to optimise their abilities and to evolve in facilitating
As practitioners, parents, teachers, or
researchers our role is to offer children effective support during this
process. In order to accomplish this objective, it is necessary for us
to gather common knowledge and expertise in the field. It is in this
spirit that we have founded the Cerebral Palsy Consortium.
The Consortium is a multidisciplinary initiative
promoting research on the social participation of children living with
cerebral palsy. Its success depends on the close collaboration of
people from different settings and disciplines who are actively
involved with children living with cerebral palsy.
