The APCP Neurodisability Committee focuses on work with children who have congenital and acquired long-term conditions that are attributed to impairment of the central nervous system, e.g. cerebral palsy, acquired brain injury and spinal cord injury and supports the role of therapists working with this group children in specialist units and in the community.
The APCP Neurodisability Committee consists of up to 12 nationally elected members.
Current key objectives and strategies for the APCP Neurodisability Committee are set out in the Neurodisability Committee Five Year Plan for 2020-2025.
