Comments

The new campaign about the early warning signs of cerebral palsy will help to promote earlier identification by parents and professionals.
Action Cerebral Palsy
To mark World CP Day, Action Cerebral Palsy has launched an awareness campaign to give new parents the confidence to speak to their GP or Health Visitor if they have any concerns about their young child’s motor development.

Movement is vital for health and development and understanding typical motor development is important. If your child is not meeting motor milestones, or if they are displaying any of the warning signs, please speak to your GP or Health Visitor about your concerns.

The poster and parent information leaflet have both received the accreditation of the Institute of Health Visiting.

You can download the posters on Action Cerebral Palsy's website: www.actioncp.org/signs.

Miles is just like any other young boy; he is full of energy and always wants to be playing. Miles has cerebral palsy and needs a Leckey Walker to support him when walking.

However, when Miles got excited and wanted to dash about, the narrow distance between the wheels of his walker, sometimes made it unsafe and unstable.

See how we helped Miles play safely by adapting his walker, read his story: https://www.remap.org.uk/3640/nothing-stopping-miles-now/

Summer Exhibitions Saturday: Lewis Fisher & Richard Ansett

Royal Photographic Society - Free talk in Bristol or Online. As part of the International Photography Exhibition 163 we are holding a Summer Exhibition Saturday event on 6 August 2022 where a selection of exhibitors will be talking about their work on show at the RPS. We are delighted that Lewis Fisher who is featured in the exhibition will be giving a talk alongside Richard Ansett who worked with Lewis to create the images in the exhibition.
In Lewis’ words…..: I have dystonic cerebral palsy which affects all my limbs, head and trunk. I use a wheelchair and eye gaze to communicate normative speech. I have low muscle tone spasticity causing extreme uncontrollable movement. I feel people often only see me as a ‘disabled’ person and not for the person who I actually am. When I was younger everything was about what I couldn’t do, but I am very positive now and challenge myself to have the best control I can. These images are the first selfies I have ever been able to take thanks to the design of a special trigger. I found it really good taking my own pictures.

Well, they did it! A message from Angus, Finn,Rory and Will who have raised an amazing £5955 for Action Cerebral Palsy: "Firstly, we’d all just like to thank you for donating to support our cycle ride. As we mentioned when we first finished, we have decided it was possibly one of the toughest, yet also most rewarding, weeks of our lives. Knowing quite how many people were supporting us (currently at over 200) really kept us going when the physical or mental side of the ride got tough...In fact, we thought you might be interested to know quite how it all got tough and where the
adventures happened: to begin, it turns out that it isn’t very possible or a good idea to cycle in 42 degree heat, which we think is one of the hottest temperatures ever experienced by the 4 of us! We were greatly amused when each town we cycled through displayed warnings about the great heatwave and how people were to avoid vigorous exercise. Nor is it pleasant to experience the full range of climates offer by cycling through very heavy thunderstorms along the coastal road no more
than 4 days later. There were however other, less negative, adventures too. We adopted the lead of other French cyclists whom we’d come across (it turns out France is officially a nation of wannabe le Tour winners) and decided that red lights in
empty towns didn’t apply to us, nor did diversion signs and road closures. A quick hop off the bike or clever detour to march through or around a small road closure saved us many needless kilometres in the heat. We were asked on the day that we finished for our top 3 moments and so we wanted to share these
with you as well:
On about the 4th day we discovered a new found fitness and started to fly along down a 20km long Roman Road from Nantes towards to the Coast, at between 27 and 30km/h, which was about as fast as we could consistently go on the flat. The collective feeling in a small peloton was exhilarating and it was a fantastic feeling to realise we had almost made it back to the coast having started there 4 mornings earlier.
Towards the end of the tour, cycling through the rolling landscape of the vineyards in Medoc was the most beautiful view that we came upon and it was an amazing place to be able to experience,
especially at the slower pace from being on a bike, with only chateaus and vineyards all around.
Above all however, one of the best moments of the tour was being together to find out that we had reached £10,000. While we had started off with smaller expectations, and progressively updated our targets, by day 5 we decided that it was achievable to raise a 5 figure sum and so we set about to raise this level of support. When, on the day that we finished the ride, we crossed the threshold level we were certainly joyous, if not a little overwhelmed, but to be together to do this was a really special moment."
Congratulations and huge thanks to you all for your incredible efforts and to all who sponsored the team from everyone at Action Cerebral Palsy!

Our intrepid fundraiser, Angus McIntyre and friends Rory, Fin and Will have sent this update; "Day 5 of 8 completed, and we're at over £2100 for Action CP now - only just over £300 until the next goal that we set at £2500 which is brilliant! Our days are sometimes filled with punctures (and one crash on day 1) but the lovely French countryside is lovely to watch passing by. We've covered 418 of our 700 odd km and are looking forward to our last 3 days even though we're knackered! Best, Angus".

Parents- does your child have hip problems associated with cerebral palsy? Action Cerebral palsy has received the following request from researchers at the University of Liverpool, Alder Hey Children's NHS Foundation Trust;

Dear parents

Re: Screening for hip problems amongst children affected by Cerebral Palsy – Parent workshop 6th July 6-7pm

We are a research team who are working on an automated system for measuring hip dysplasia in children with cerebral palsy. At the moment, there is the national surveillance system - called CPIPS - which looks for hip problems with regular X-rays of the hips (the frequency of x-rays depending on the severity of the cerebral palsy). Once the x-ray is taken, the doctor/ physiotherapist has to make some measurements on the x-ray and then determine if the child could benefit from any intervention.

One of the greatest challenges we have found with the system is that the doctors/ physiotherapist aren’t always able to give as much time as they’d like to the x-rays. So the research team are striving to make the service even better by building a computer system that uses machine vision (or artificial intelligence) to take the measurements automatically. This will eventually input the results of the x-rays automatically into the CPIPs database - and any changes can be flagged to the treating doctors.

However, there are always anxieties about using machine vision to replace experts - which we are really aware of. We are therefore looking for parents to help us understand the problem, identify their concerns and address how we can best respond to anxieties.

The research team intend to hold two workshops with parents with Cerebral Palsy under the age of 16 years. The first workshop has been organised for Wednesday 6th July at 6pm. The online workshop will last 1 hour and focus on:

· Introduction to project (including why we are doing it)

· Discussion of implications of project (is it acceptable to get a machine to make measurements)

· Update on current state of the project and future plans

The second workshop will be arranged in the Autumn (most likely via Zoom).

You will receive £25.00 for attending the workshop to thank you for your time.

If you would like to know more about the research before you register, please contact Jenny Preston (Senior Patient and Public Involvement Manager) on [email protected]

Please register your interest by emailing Jenny on the above email.

Kind regards

Jenny Preston on behalf of the research team

Your views as the CP Community are vital to the work of the APPG and we want to remind you that the APPG on Cerebral Palsy is holding a call for evidence for our forthcoming report on the transition to adulthood for young people with Cerebral Palsy.
We are taking written submissions for our report to Parliamentarians with a deadline of 5pm on 15 July. There are still two weeks left to get your submissions in.
We are seeking evidence from people with lived and professional experience of the process of supporting the transition of young people with cerebral palsy (14-25) into adulthood, with a focus on health, education and care needs. This evidence will be used to inform the recommendations the APPG makes to Government. Input from any interested stakeholder on these topics will be considered.
You can view our full call for evidence herehttps://connectpa.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/APPG-on-CP-ToR-Transitioning-to-Adulthood.pdf
Please limit your submission to 3 sides of A4, use clear sub-headings and include a brief bullet summary of your evidence at the top of the submission. We will also accept submissions in video or other non-written formats such as audio files of no more than two minutes in length.
Send with the subject line: APPG on Cerebral Palsy – call for evidence, to: [email protected]
