NAVAS CONTINO, Mirka et al. A system proposal for the integral care of the handicapped children with cerebral palsy and their family. Medicentro Electrónica [online]. 2013, vol.17, n.2, pp.56-64. ISSN 1029-3043.

A descriptive research of transversal type was carried out at the “Santa Clara” University Polyclinic from January, 2006 to January, 2010. It was divided into two stages: description stage and design stage, where it was created an integral care system of the handicapped children and their family. Most of the children were product of 41 weeks' gestation with dystocia, and the most frequent disorder found during the physical exam was in the muscular tone. Mostly of them were sociable children; almost all of the tutors spent much time caring them, the average age of tutors was 41 years and had high level of school education. They replaced children in many activities, loved them and felt worried for their future. We concluded that cerebral palsy can not be prevented, as well as, integral care is very important for children and tutors, that is why, it was designed this system in order to achieve it.
