New Book to Help Parents Understand Cerebral Palsy

Snowdrop Child Development Consultants would like to announce the publication of their new book, 'Cerebral Palsy. - A Short Guide,' - written by Andrew Brereton. The book is designed to fill a perceived need for information by parents of newly diagnosed children and to update the knowledge of parents whose children have been diagnosed for a while.

The birth of a child into a family is usually a joyous occasion, but when the parents are informed that their child has cerebral palsy, that joy turns to horror. The parents are suddenly thrust into a different world, - a strange and frightening world; - a world of disability.

Amidst the range of emotions they are experiencing, of shock, disbelief, confusion and and grief, the parents have to make their own way in this new world, having mostly been given little information or support. Many do not even truly know what cerebral palsy is! This is where this book steps into that turmoil and plays an important part.

This short guide has been written by Andrew Brereton, himself parent to a child with profound cerebral palsy. Brereton has 23 years' experience as a parent, a researcher and latterly as a neurodevelopmental therapist. He is well qualified in the fields of neuroscience, child development and is the founder of 'Snowdrop' an organisation which provides treatment and support for children with cerebral palsy and their families.

The guide begins by addressing the overly complex and confusing definitions which surround cerebral palsy, shrouding the true and simple definition like veils. It provides a clear, simple definition, which is easy to understand. It then moves on to explain the various problems which cerebral palsy can cause in the child.

Throughout, the guide speaks of hope, discussing the concept of brain plasticity and how it can be utilised to provide effective treatment to help the child to achieve his or her potential. At ?5.99 for a print copy and only ?3.19 for a download, it has been priced specifically so that it is affordable to everyone.

It is available from Lulu at http://www.lulu.com/product/paperback/cerebral-palsy---a-short-guide/15468012#detailsSection

It is also available through the Snowdrop website. http://www.snowdrop.cc
