Cerebral Palsy Center
To improve outcome(s) in patients with cerebral palsy by advancing Clinical Care and Education.
The Wake Forest Cerebral Palsy Center (WFCPC) integrates clinical care, research, and education to advance the treatment of Cerebral Palsy. The development of an integrated approach to fulfill our mission ensures that individual patient care is always the primary objective.
Why We are Different
At WFCPC, multidisciplinary care is provided by a team of physicians, clinical specialists, therapists, and research scientists in order to improve patient care. Real-time patient analysis guides individualized patient care, permits retrospective and prospective data acquisition, and enhances education of physicians, caregivers, and patients.
Our state-of-the-art facilities and research expertise provide an environment that addresses the individual needs of the patient and their families while advancing the understanding of Cerebral Palsy nationally and internationally.

I am Not Different
Maybe my balance isn't all that steady when
Or my speech not too easily understood when
It may take special equipment, you see,
To make each day much easier for me.
Complaining about the way I am, no, not I,
Because I know somewhere there is a reason
If you give me a chance you'll find it's
That I am not any different from you.
