Brief description Every 15 hours a new child is born with Cerebral Palsy (CP). CP is due to an early static brain injury however physical problems can progress. Our PREDICT program will examine early measures of brain structure and motor development combined with growth, nutrition, physical activity, cognition, communication, participation, quality of life outcomes at 8 years and relate these to the costs of health care. These prediction models will inform the timing of early interventions, appropriate service provision and projected costs of health care.
