2021 International Conference on Physical Activity and Health for People with Cerebral Palsy or Acquired Brain Injury

December 7 @ 1:00 pm - December 10 @ 10:00 pm PST


This is a virtual conference from Australia

The call for evidence for actions is ever increasing, and as the awareness of disability sport is growing, so is the need for knowledge exchange. Cerebral palsy (CP) affects approximately 17 million people worldwide and it is estimated that over 40 million people sustain an acquired brain injury (ABI) each year. No two people with cerebral palsy or an ABI will be affected in exactly the same way.

There is a need to provide a space for knowledge exchange and learning between researchers and practitioners in the field of sport and recreation for cerebral palsy and related conditions. At the grassroots end of disability sport and recreation, more parents, therapists and individuals are taking a larger interest in participation as the benefits of physical activity on all aspects of well-being are becoming more widely known. Equally, at the competitive and elite end of cerebral palsy sport, research into coaching, evidence-based classification and psychological effects of sport is all being explored.


The CPISRA International Conference on Physical Activity and Health for People with Cerebral Palsy and Acquired Brain Injury aims to provide a forum for knowledge exchange and enhance interaction between researchers, healthcare professionals, sporting experts, individuals and families in order to address the unique matters in the interdisciplinary area of adaptive physical activity and sport for individuals with cerebral palsy and acquired brain injury. This conference will be unique in linking those doing research with those who will apply the knowledge.
