With over 764,000 people in the United States diagnosed with cerebral palsy, the dissemination of information on cerebral palsy is disproportionate to the population affected. Out of the 764,000 cerebral palsy patients in this country, more than 150,000 are children. Each year, more than 10,000 new cases are diagnosed in children ranging from birth to three years of age. It is estimated that the worldwide population of cerebral palsy patients has exceeded 15,000,000. There is a remarkable need for a publication presenting more information focusing on cerebral palsy issues for families, individuals with cerebral palsy, and health care, so why not a cerebral palsy magazine?
It just so happens that the calling for a cerebral palsy magazine was answered as Cerebral Palsy Magazine was launched in June 2003.

Richardís 16 years of experience in the pediatric physical therapy field comes from extensive training, clinical experience, and continuing education courses. He also holds a Personal Fitness Trainer Certificate and is a member of the American College of Sport Medicine. Richard and Izabela also have two daughters, one a 14-year-old with cerebral palsy.
