For Parents

United Cerebral Palsy provides resources both locally and nationally for parents and other caregivers of children with disabilities.

Toy Lending Library

This unique service was been developed because of our belief in the importance of play in a child's development. It is a mobile toy library which travels around the county and makes designated stops at churches, libraries and recreation centers. This service is available to children with any type of disability from birth to 5 years old developmentally. MORE

Software Lending Library

The Software Library loans computer software to children with disabilities, aged 2 to 10 years old, and provides assistance to parents on selecting software and hardware that will aid in the child's development. MORE

My Child Without Limits

My Child Without Limits was created in 2009 as an authoritative early intervention resource for families of young children ages 0-5 with developmental delays or disabilities, and professionals looking for a single, trusted, aggregate source websiteof information that relates to their needs and interests.

Through the expertise of its Medical, Parent, and UCP Advisory committees, My Child Without Limits offers information in three key areas:  Understand, Plan, and Act.

There is also a community section where parents can communicate with each other, ask questions of professionals and service providers, and receive support through the critical period of initial diagnosis. 

The site includes a national Resource Locator to find local service providers, community organizations and government agencies. All this is intended to inform and support parents/caregivers at a time when too much information can be overwhelming and too little can be frustrating. 

Reaching For The Stars

Launched in late 2005 by two mothers in Atlanta, Georgia, “Reaching for the Stars. A Foundation of Hope for Children with Cerebral Palsy” (RFTS, Inc.) has grown into the largest North American pediatric Cerebral Palsy nonprofit foundation led by parents, with a focus on the Prevention, Treatment and Cure of Cerebral Palsy. They are committed to serving the needs of children with Cerebral Palsy, their families, and the caregivers involved in their care.

The RFTS mission is centered on the belief that leading-edge pediatric research, increased awareness and education will lead to new treatments of Cerebral Palsy, improving the lives of impacted children and their families.

In just a few short years, “Reaching for the Stars” has made huge strides to increase Cerebral Palsy awareness and research progress. The website includes a Resource Center with accurate, beneficial information for parents of children with Cerebral Palsy.
