Controlling and Coercive Behaviour: Widening the Net
World Cerebral Palsy (CP) Day recently took place on 5 October 2016. To mark the occasion, members of the Kingsley Napley Clinical Negligence team attended an event hosted by the London Centre for Children with Cerebral Palsy (a World CP day partner).
CP is a movement disorder caused by injury to the brain (often occurring during birth or in early childhood). It is associated with other impairments; for example, some (but not all) people with CP will also have some level of cognitive impairment, speech difficulties and/or visual impairment.
The purpose of World CP day is to raise public awareness of the condition and to campaign for issues on behalf of the CP community, which include the need for early diagnosis in childhood and access to specialist physical, cognitive, occupational and speech therapies, to support those suffering from this condition to lead fulfilling lives.
Kingsley Napley is privileged to have represented many individuals with cerebral palsy (in cases where the condition has been caused by medical negligence) and we have seen the difference in quality of life obtained through access to the right therapies, education, equipment and adapted accommodation.
We are also a long-standing supporter of the London Centre for Children with Cerebral Palsy, which provides conductive education in a supportive environment, to enable children with CP to realise their potential.
