Schedule & Program


9:00–9:05 am Welcome
Melissas Villegas, MD, Clinic Director, Waisman Center Cerebral Palsy Clinic
9:05–9:40 am “Advancing Research in Cerebral Palsy: Real Feedback from Real Participants and Their Families”
Bernadette Gillick, PhD, MSPT, Associate Professor, Developmental Pediatrics and Rehabilitation Medicine
Bernadette Gillick is both a neuroscientist and a pediatric physical therapist who studies ways to understand how the brain of a child both develops and recovers after early injury and diagnosis of cerebral palsy.  Using a form of non-surgical brain stimulation with cutting-edge rehabilitation her team has discovered new frontiers in improving movement function.  Importantly, her research studies are built from feedback directly from the people with whom her team works- the children themselves and their families. This talk will share both the promising outcomes from her studies, and the valuable lessons learned from her participant teams.
9:45–10:30 am PANEL DISCUSSION—A panel of experts that includes individuals with CP and family members.
Panel discussion moderated by Abygail Marx, MS, CCC-SLP, Clinical Speech Pathologist, Waisman Center Communication Aids and Systems Clinic (CASC)
