Perceptions of Adults with Cerebral Palsy Childhood Treatments and

Positive Outcomes in Adulthood?

We would like your opinions about possible links between orthopedic treatment as a child and success as an adult, for individuals with cerebral palsy. We will use the information you provide to help us improve our methods of care for children with cerebral palsy and to promote positive outcomes in adulthood.

Completing this survey is voluntary. The survey should take about 15-20 minutes to complete; however, it may take up to 30 minutes for those who may need assistance with reading and inputting answers due to visual and/or motor difficulties. 

Your opinions are important, even if they are different from the opinions of others. Participating in this survey will provide you with no direct benefits, but by sharing your opinions, you can help the people who provide care to children with cerebral palsy. There are no known risks to participating in this survey.

The questions with asterisks next to the question number require answers before you can move on to the next page. If you do not want to answer, you may exit the survey at any time. There will be no penalty or loss of benefits if you decide to withdraw from the research.
