Research Activities For Cerebral Palsy

Research Activities for Cerebral Palsy

Metropolitan Atlanta Developmental Disabilities Study
The Metropolitan Atlanta Developmental Disabilities Study (MADDS) was the first US, population-based epidemiologic study of the prevalence of mental retardation, cerebral palsy, hearing impairment, vision impairment, and epilepsy among school-aged children.

Follow-Up Study of Children with Developmental Disabilities
The Follow-Up Study involves a tracing and interviewing a group of young adults (including those with cerebral palsy) who, as 10-year-old children, were studied in the Metropolitan Atlanta Developmental Disabilities Study. The purpose of the present effort is to assess the mortality experience and causes of death within the case group from age 10 to age 20 and to characterize the status of the survivors with respect to current health status, living arrangements, socialization, employment, quality of life, service utilization, and independence.

The Infant Development Study
The Infant Development Study (IDS) is a case-control study to investigate the apparent protective effect of prenatal magnesium sulfate exposure on the risk for cerebral palsy among low birthweight children.

The Children’s Longitudinal Development Study (CHILD Study)
The Children’s Longitudinal Development Study (CHILD Study) is an ongoing case-control study in which detailed information will be obtained on pre- and perinatal medical conditions and suspected risk factors for select disabilities among children identified through the Metropolitan Atlanta Developmental Disabilities Surveillance Program (MADDSP).



In all matters involving personal injury it is essential that measures be taken promptly to preserve evidence, investigate the accident in question, and file a lawsuit prior to the deadline imposed by the Statute of Limitations. If you or a loved one is a victim of personal injuries, call David W. Singer & Associates now at 1.800.ASK.FREE or submit a simple Case Review Form. The initial consultation is free of charge, and if we agree to accept your case, we will work on a Contingent Fee basis, which means we get paid for our services only if there is a monetary award or recovery of funds. Don’t delay! You may have a valid claim and be entitled to compensation for your injuries, but a lawsuit must be filed before the statute of limitations expires. The above is not legal advice. That can only come from a qualified attorney who is familiar with all the facts and circumstances of a particular, specific case and the relevant law. See Terms of Use.
