Cerebral Palsy

Clients of Brownbill Associates Ltd who have cerebral palsy typically have the condition as a result of a birth injury.

Usual features of the condition for our clients include a number of the following:

  • Motor dysfunction at the severe end of the spectrum with significant physical disabilities where coordinated movement is impossible
  • Epilepsy
  • Difficulty with communication
  • Visual problems
  • Learning disability
  • Feeding problems
  • Pain
  • Incontinence
  • Behavioural disorders

Our case managers who specialise in assisting children and young people have significant professional experience of working with clients with the above types of problems. They work to ensure their clients receive treatment and rehabilitation from specialists in neurology and will help source therapists close to home so that frequent treatment sessions are readily available and not cost prohibitive.

Case managers recognise the additional demands placed on parents and siblings in caring for a child with significant disabilities and will support them as well. This may involve arranging family counselling, helping to plan a holiday and, not least, recruiting carers to help with the daily pressures.

Another major part of the case manager's role is to liaise with the education authority and school to ensure the client's needs are being met at school and their potential is maximised. The case manager will also communicate with therapists and carers at home and school to make certain everyone is working towards the same goals and the approach is consistent. 

In addition, the case managers have particular knowledge about therapy and learning through play and making them fun to do, which is very important!
