Cerebral Palsy Nepal (registered as Self-Help Group for Cerebral Palsy, Nepal) is Nepal’s only non-governmental and non-profit organization dedicated to supporting people with cerebral palsy and their families. Since our foundation 27 years ago, we have helped thousands of individuals with cerebral palsy and development delay to overcome many of the barriers they face, and to live happy and fulfilled lives.
Our centre in Dhapakhel, Laitpur delivers a range of medical, therapeutic and education services for children with cerebral palsy. The key programmes located at the centre are:
- Rehabilitation Centre (CPRC) – open Monday to Friday 10am-5pm, the CPRC offers children with cerebral palsy and their families a complete range of services, including medical assessment and care, counselling, educational psychology, speech therapy, physiotherapy and occupational therapy.
- School (Special Education Programme) – our school provides an education tailored to the individual needs of up to 50 children.
- Vocational Training Unit (Special Education Programme) – The recent addition of the unit further allows the children to build skills for later life.
- Residential Programme (‘Phulbari’) – the programme extends the centre’s services to those in rural areas beyond the Kathmandu Valley.
