Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a multiply handicapping condition affecting all areas of a child’s development. It has been documented as one of the most severe disabilities in childhood.  

Research in the area of Speech & Language Therapy (SLT) service delivery for children with CP has always been limited.  

Primary Aims:

·         To evaluate parents’ perceptions regarding the nature and quality of SLT service delivery to children with CP

·         To evaluate Speech –Language Therapists’ perceptions regarding the nature and quality of SLT service delivery they provide to children with CP.

·         To measure the degree of concordance between parents’ and Speech-Language Therapists’ perceptions of SLT service delivery.
