Further Items on Cerebral Palsy Report in the News

It is now a week since the report on cerebral palsy was published

I have been checking to see if news items about the report have been published since then. As far as I can establish there have only been two,  in  the local newspapers of Portsmouth and Leicester.

The Portsmouth Evening News  states

This would include nationally-agreed protocols around earlier diagnosis and intervention, improved awareness and training for health and education professionals, improved signposting and support for families and greater funding for research into cerebral palsy to improve outcomes. Now the government will work to  put these recommendations in place.

A very interesting  statement.

The  other, from  the MP for Loughborough in Leicestershire, Nicky Morgan, also Secretary of State for Education, is a note in her  column for the Leicester Mercury. She refers to her attendance at the reception for the Report and a Leicestershire CE centre, Steps and its work.

I have not received information about any others I may have missed, so I am assuming that that is probably it now.
