What is it about?

This study explores what contributes to the well-being of school-age children with cerebral palsy (CP) from the viewpoint of their caregivers. It investigates various factors, including the child's abilities, family dynamics, environmental challenges, and support systems, to understand and enhance the children's health-related quality of life (HRQoL).

Why is it important?

By identifying predictors of HRQoL, the research offers valuable insights for caregivers, clinicians, and policymakers. The findings emphasise the importance of continuous support for children's development, addressing environmental barriers, and improving family-centred rehabilitation care. Additionally, the study sheds light on the need for supportive laws and policies, especially in regions like Serbia.


Being part of this research was a meaningful experience, highlighting the crucial role that a supportive environment plays in the lives of children with CP. Collaborating with caregivers and professionals, we aim to improve not only the children's well-being but also the overall quality of care and understanding within our communities. We hope that these insights will pave the way for more informed and compassionate approaches to caregiving and policymaking.
