About EDMONTON CEREBRAL PALSY ASSOCIATION
The association was established in 1951 by a group of parents who were concerned with the lack of treatment facilities for their children who were affected by cerebral palsy. It was this group that was responsible for the creation of the South Cerebral Palsy Clinic. This clinic provided physiotherapy, speech therapy, and other forms of treatment.
The ECPA was responsible for bringing to the attention of the Alberta government the need for expanded treatment services. This resulted in the establishment of the Glenrose Hospital in 1967.
Although the association has changed over the years the goal has remain the same, to provide assistance to those affected by Cerebral Palsy. Today we continue to help our members live a better, more productive life in our community.
