Support and teach: The physical and occupational therapists are probably f the most important medical professionals in the life of a child with cerebral palsy. They help with positioning, strengthening, stretching tight muscles, helping children clothe themselves, feed themselves and prepare for life. For children who have more severe problems, they help in wheelchairs, standers, bracing, etc.
