The Six ‘F-Words’ for CP

This is a guest post submitted by Dr. Jan Willem Gorter, the Director of CanChild.

Today, October 5th,  we celebrate #WorldCPDay and work together to change the lives of children and adults with #CerebralPalsy around the globe.

This year, we worked in close collaboration with World CP Day to produce "The Six 'F-Words' for CP" poster, focused on the six key areas of childhood development:

Function - Family - Fitness - Friends - Fun - Future

We are thrilled to announce that this project is available to download here:

Please share this poster with friends, family and co-workers!
