Comprehensive Care You Won’t Outgrow
The Weinberg Family Cerebral Palsy Center is the first program dedicated to transitional care for cerebral palsy (CP) on the East Coast. The Center provides integrated, coordinated, and multidisciplinary health care for pediatric, transitional age, and adult care.
We offer a comprehensive, holistic approach to meet the health care needs of the growing adult cerebral palsy population, with an emphasis on facilitating the often difficult medical transition from adolescence into adulthood.
Our nationally recognized clinicians and experts work together to provide coordinated care for people with cerebral palsy.

"Around the time I turned 50 my body started becoming more unreliable and I knew I needed to see someone. My story is typical in that I had excellent care as a child, but from the age of about 25-50, I didn't really have a CP doctor. Whenever I tried to find one, they only saw kids. Luckily, a friend of mine found the center and sent me the link."
"Thanks to the excellent care I received at the Weinberg Family CP Center, my body is on a path to healing, and my quality of life is nearly what it was before I started to lose my ability to walk independently. My mind, emotions, and heart are healing as well."
