Cerebral Palsy Research Registry is a multi-institutional collaborative effort whose primary mission is to improve our understanding of cerebral palsy. We believe that by working together, families and researchers can make a difference in the lives of people affected by cerebral palsy.  As of 2017,  no one can reliably say how many people have CP or how they are doing despite it being the most common motor disability incurred in childhood.
