Welcome to HemiHelp
HemiHelp is a charity providing support and information to people with hemiplegia and their families in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
What is hemiplegia?
Hemiplegia is a neurological condition that weakens one side of the body, and affects up to one child in a thousand. It is sometimes described as a form of cerebral palsy, and the effects are similar to those of a stroke. Find out more about hemiplegia
Written by neuropaediatrician Dr Charlie Fairhurst and Liz Barnes, a trustee at HemiHelp and parent of a child with hemiplegia, the handbook gives an overview of living with hemiplegia with straightforward explanations of what can go wrong and the management options; and with clear descriptions of approaches to therapy.
