dc.description.abstract Cerebral palsy children are members of the families, their needs should be addressed in the context of life cycle approach, that is, within the family, environment, and social network Hall and Hill (1996:90). The presence of a child with a disability in the family has an effect on family members. Family is unit to which cerebral palsy children belongs ,both by birth and as a right. Therefore, family empowerment is essential if we seek a well being and acceptable life style for cerebral palsy children. Children with physical and mental disability who are not functioning optimally have special needs. It is within this context that needs assessment with parents of cerebral palsy children will be conducted. This is necessary in order to maintain and create balanced care. It is important to note that in describing or classifying cerebral palsy, the following two systems are used, that is, type of neuromuscular involvement (i.e. spastic, anthetoid etc.) and limbs involvement (i.e. hemiplegic, quadraplegic etc.). In addition, the description usually include the degree of severity, that is mild moderate or profound. en_US
