Devices such as computers, computer software, voice synthesizers, and picture books can greatly help some individuals with CP improve communications skills.
Orthotics help to compensate for muscle imbalance and increase independent mobility. Braces and splints use external force to correct muscle abnormalities and improve function such as sitting or walking.
Wheelchairs, rolling walkers, and powered scooters can help individuals who are not independently mobile.
VISION / HEARING
Glasses, magnifiers, and large-print books/computer typefaces assist with vision. Some individuals with CP may need surgery to correct vision problems. Hearing aids and telephone amplifiers may help people hear more clearly.
