Navigating Life with Cerebral Palsy: The Role of Accurate Information

Finding the right information at the right time is key to everyone involved in the cerebral palsy journey, be it people with cerebral palsy or their family and carers. Cerebral palsy is the most common physical disability in childhood and affects over 37,000 Australians. Until now, there was no one source of truth in Australia.

The main bodies for cerebral palsy in Australia partnered with Two Bulls/DEPT® to create a solution. My CP Guide comprises of  a consortium of Australian organisations, led by Cerebral Palsy Australia and including Ability First Australia, Cerebral Palsy Alliance and the Cerebral Palsy Support Network.

Making Sense of Cerebral Palsy: An Accessible Overview

My CP Guide is a web platform curated with accessible, up to date information for the different life stages of people and carers living with cerebral palsy.The organisation of resources into life stages has been very well received from users and especially from those caring for infants that have recently received a diagnosis.

There is potential to also bolster resources for other life stages and especially for those people in the older demographic. The platform and the resources are generally considered to be engaging and well designed and are accessible within a simple to navigate, clear and user friendly environment.

”My CP Guide provides a wealth of information in an easy-to-use format. It has been invaluable for helping our family identify and navigate support and services for our daughter. I wish I had My CP Guide when she was first diagnosed.”

Two Bulls built an innovative platform with streamlined pathways to content that is WCAG AA Accredited. My CP Guide is now firmly embedded with core content for people aged 0-99 years old with 675 unique information resources uploaded, and 88% of people that were surveyed experienced an increase in knowledge as a result of accessing various resources. 

Over the coming years, it will provide a single place of information resources to address significant cerebral palsy information and be a platform where personal stories and content from parents, people with cerebral palsy and carers can be shared with the community.
