My granddaughter's needs

My granddaughter is 3 (4 in June 2019) She has, what I would call a mild case of cerebral palsy. She walks and talks normally and her speech is normal. Her main disability is her right arm and hand. She can't use them properly and now I have noticed it is making her very frustrated as she can't use her right hand in play - and in everything really. I am worried about this holding her back and causing her not to be able to keep up with 'normal' children. Is there any help she can get to enable her to use her hand and arm better. Her parents have her name down for a main stream school but will she have problems? We all thought it was Erbs Palsy but she has been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. Can I advise her parents in any way. It just seems to me that her problems are not being addressed as they should be. Thanks. Any advice or suggestions would be really appreciated.
