United Cerebral Palsy educates, advocates, and provides access to local support services for people with a spectrum of disabilities. It is recommended as a comprehensive source of advocacy information for those with disabilities, caregivers, and policymakers. Though there is little information about cerebral palsy itself, there are links to additional information and many needed resources.
The category tab "Explore Resources" houses the relevant content for patients and families. This tab is subtopic-heavy, but each page has at least a similar layout for consistency. Small chunks of text with many links in bright red font to other websites makes the content manageable to read.
The website features a professional and image-heavy homepage. Beyond that, most of the website is entirely text-based. Worse, the font is light gray and hard to read.
The website and its linked resources provide a wide range of information useful to people with disabilities and those who care for them. The information on the site is not referenced, and most educational content here is introductory. But there are excellent resources linked here that visitors can explore and use.
No authors cited, although a staff and board of directors is identified. Posting dates are present, but most dates of publication/review are over two years old, while some are missing entirely. Most of the information and credibility comes from external links to other websites.
