    Hi @Charliep and a very warm welcome to the community! We have a CP board that I will move this discussion to and I hope this will help you find others. It may also be worth looking at the Parents and Carers board. The community is about giving advice and support so I hope we can offer you just that.
    I have CP myself so if you had any more general questions then I would love to help! We also have my colleague @Richard_Scope who is the Cerebral Palsy information specialist!

    Hi @Charliep
    We have some videos of parents discussing their child's impairments that you might like to watch?

    Hi @Charliep
    Great to meet you! It can be a very lonely time as a parent when you have received a diagnosis. I have Cerebral Palsy myself and can chat to you about any aspects of CP. I would also like to suggest a really useful book called Including Children with Cerebral Palsy in the Early Years
    You don't have to go through this alone. We are here as a community to help where we can.
