Q1 Progress of the cerebral palsy groups

By Harriet Babikako | project lead

Building upon the successful training of lead mothers in the last quarter, this report details the progress and achievements of the rehabilitation program for children with cerebral palsy in this quarter

1. Lead Mother Facilitation:

  • Established Support Groups: 5 new support groups were established, reaching 40 additional caregivers.
  • Frequency and Attendance: Groups met weekly, with an average attendance of 8 caregivers per meeting.
  • Topics Covered and Feedback: Lead mothers facilitated sessions on positioning, communication strategies, and accessing community resources. Caregivers reported increased knowledge and confidence in caring for their children (85% satisfaction rate).

2. Child Interventions:

  • Active Participants: 70 children continued to actively participate in the program.
  • Progress in Development:

-          Motor Skills: 70% of children showed improvement in gross motor skills, as measured by standardized assessments.

-          Communication: 60% of children demonstrated progress in communication skills, such as using gestures and vocalizations.

-          Other Areas: All children showed improvements in social interaction and participation in daily activities.

  • Adherence and Adaptations: 85% of children adhered to intervention plans. Minor adaptations were made based on individual needs and progress.
  • Challenges and Solutions: Some children faced challenges with accessing specialized equipment. The program partnered with local organizations to provide essential equipment loans.

3. Community Engagement:

  • Awareness Campaigns and Outreach: Conducted educational workshops for 100 community members, reaching parents, teachers, and healthcare workers.
  • Community Collaborations: Partnered with local schools to promote inclusion and provide accessibility modifications.
  • Impact on Awareness and Inclusion: Increased community understanding and acceptance of children with CP, as evidenced by positive media coverage and invitations to community events.

4. Results and Impact:

  • Quantitative Data:
    • Caregiver knowledge scores increased by an average of 20 points after participating in support groups.
    • 90% of caregivers reported feeling more confident in caring for their children.
    • Child development assessments showed an overall improvement of 15% in motor and communication skills.
  • Qualitative Examples:
    • Sarah, a mother of a child with CP, stated, "The support group has given me hope and practical tools to help my child thrive."

5. Sustainability and Future Plans:

  • Funding Strategies: Exploring grant opportunities and partnerships with corporate sponsors to secure long-term funding.
  • Expansion Plans: Aiming to train 10 additional lead mothers and reach 50 more children in the next year.
  • Research and Knowledge Sharing: Collaborating with universities to conduct research on the program's effectiveness and share best practices with other organizations.

6. Conclusion:

This quarter saw significant progress in the rehabilitation program for children with CP. The lead mother initiative proved successful, fostering peer support and empowering caregivers. Children demonstrated improvements in development and inclusion within their communities. We are confident that by building upon these achievements, the program will continue to have a positive and lasting impact on the lives of children with CP and their families.
