The Cerebral Palsy Experience Journal was made possible by contributions from the Boston Children’s Hospital Department of Psychiatry. David R, DeMaso, MD, Editor, and Sneha Rao, RN, former Project Coordinator, worked collaboratively with Laurie Glader, MD, Carol Nolan, RN, Susan Shanske, LICSW, and Susan Riley, DPT from the Cerebral Palsy Program at Boston Children’s Hospital to create this Experience Journal. This project could not have been possible without the additional support of a team of reviewers including Rick Bourne, JD, Caitlin Bright, and other members of the Editorial Board.
We would also like to thank students Elisabeth Modestino, Carlyn Burdick, Melissa Alexander, and Amy Hardcastle for their help transcribing, organizing, and editing the content. The video clips of the family interview were produced and edited by Dixon Yun. Content was uploaded to the site and organized by Timothy DeMaso.
Finally, and most importantly, we extend enormous gratitude to all of the families who generously provided their stories for the Cerebral Palsy Experience Journal.
