Cerebral Palsy of Westchester Academic Partnership

Cerebral Palsy of Westchester Academic PartnershipSince 1949, Cerebral Palsy of Westchester has been a leading non-profit organization providing essential educational services, direct services, vocational training, recreation, rehabilitation and advocacy to children and adults with all developmental disabilities including autism, neurological impairments, intellectual disabilities, epilepsy and cerebral palsy. It is their mission to advance the independence, productivity, and full citizenship of people with Cerebral Palsy and other disabilities.

Founded by a dedicated network of volunteers, helping disabled children access medical treatments and services that were just becoming available in area hospitals. Today there are more than a dozen locations throughout Westchester and Fairfield Counties with both employees and volunteers who share a vision for each child with a disability to have the opportunity to live and grow within their family, to shape their own destinies and to participate in lifestyles that enable them to live and make a contribution to their own communities to the fullest extent possible.
