What Will You Learn?

This comprehensive course will teach you an understanding of the wider scope of Cerebral Palsy, including its levels of severity and five forms, and how each type affects the person with the condition. You will also learn about the range of needs of children, teens, and adults with Cerebral Palsy.

Over the years, treatments for persons with Cerebral Palsy have become increasingly more progressive. The Cerebral Palsy Awareness Diploma Course looks at treatments from both traditional and complementary medicine. With more options than ever before, these treatments can lead to less pain, reduced spasticity, a higher level of independent movement, and a sense of being able to participate more fully in life than ever before.

Learning how to deal with the day-to-day is an important part of living with Cerebral Palsy. The course discusses the benefits of having a support system in place, should extra help be needed, and details self-advocacy techniques and strategies that can be used to build confidence and independence. You will also learn about the 6 major aspects of life in which a sense of wellbeing can enable a person to make positive changes.

Knowing your rights is an important part of living with Cerebral Palsy. The course discusses the wider world of disability rights, the law, and strategies/accommodations that can ensure the best possible integration in school and work environments.

The course looks through the history of Cerebral Palsy, including the various movements that have improved public perception and changed attitudes. You will discover how treatments have evolved over time and how current research may change future therapies. You will also learn about common symptoms in babies that are indicative of Cerebral Palsy and what the specific medical causes of the condition are, both congenital and acquired. A glossary of terms is included to ensure comprehension.

Independence, self-sufficiency, and self-advocacy are three of the most important things to any person, so these are of course important to someone with Cerebral Palsy. The Cerebral Palsy Awareness Course explains how those caring for individuals with the condition can work with them to help them gain independence, and the systems, support, and technologies that are in place to accomplish this.

Fitness and wellness should be important to everyone, but for those with Cerebral Palsy, it can make a big difference to their quality of life. The course explains the ways in which those with the condition can exercise and even guides through some exercise routines that target specific areas. Also covered is the importance of proper nutrition and how to prepare and take in food.
