The I Am Here campaign has many different tools that can be downloaded and customized in your own language. We have provided photography and artwork but you can use your own photographs as well. Once you have created the tool you want, you can have it easily printed at a local print shop.
We have three important requests:
- Please make sure your customisation does not change the I Am Here / We Are Here theme, the design or the intention of each tool. It is extremely important that our campaign looks the same, so each local action we take can add up to have a global impact.
- Please take a photograph of yourself and post it with your I Am Here story, so we can share it with the rest of the World CP Day community.
- Offer your suggestion for how to improve each tool, and tell us your ideas for new tools that could help our campaign.

Add your own message to these placards. Use them in a parade, or put them around public spaces. Example: I Am Here … Fighting for my right to an education | We Are Here… Because our child is brilliant and capable.
Take a photo holding of yourself with the placard and post it on the World CP Day Map.
About cerebral palsy
Use these infographic posters about cerebral palsy to educate and inform doctors, teachers and other members of the community.
A collaboration between World CP Day and CanChild. First discussed by Dr Peter Rosenbaum and Jan Willem Gorter in 2012, Favourite (‘F’) Words focus on the six key areas of child development. “Recognizing that no one factor is more important than another, we hope to encourage people in the childhood disability field to adopt this way of thinking and apply these concepts in their work with children with disabilities and their families.”
Cerebral Palsy Tool Kit: From Diagnosis to Understanding
The CP NOW Foundation has published a comprehensive 86 page guide for parents, called The Cerebral Palsy Tool Kit: From Diagnosis to Understanding. It explores both the clinical aspects of diagnosis and treatment, and the impact on the family, with practical and positive advice from other parents of children with CP. It also has a glossary of terms and a number of personal stories from parents and adults living with CP. Subscribe to the Foundation newsletter to download the PDF version of the tool kit [English-only].
