Description:
[CPS is registered as a charity. Its principal activities are the promotion of international research and knowledge and the development of treatments for cerebral palsy and related disorders. 1CPS believes in providing a service based on requirements, and these vary from country to country. The central office is a "resource centre" which deals with enquiries from all over the world about a variety of subjects including aid and appliances, architectural design, access, special education, forms of treatment, primary prevention, employment, integration, housing. sex education, holidays, social problems. The ICPS has encouraged, helped and advised those setting up their own local Societies, giving specialist advice on assessment, parent support, early education and treatment and, where appropriate, has suggested ways in which existing outdated services should be improved and reorganised. ICPS believes that those best able to identify and solve problems are disabled people themselves with the help of others who have similar problems. Spreading information and meeting other people working with the disabled is vitally important and to do this the ICPS has, with local members, organised over 56 meetings in 23 different countries.
