Aaron W. Perlman Center

  • About Us

    All children should have the opportunity to live life as fully as possible. The Aaron W. Perlman Center helps children with cerebral palsy and other physical challenges do just that.  

    We are a specialty center designed to address the complex therapy, developmental, assistive technology and care coordination needs of children, youth and adults with cerebral palsy and other physically limiting conditions. 

    Our comprehensive therapy and support programs focus on more than just your child.  We believe your entire family is central to your child’s development and success, so we involve you and your family in your child’s care.   

    Our care coordinators are key members of our Perlman teams, and our programs help our parents and siblings manage the challenges of living with a child with special needs.  From early intervention through support for teens and adults, the Perlman Center is committed to staying connected and providing the best possible interventions to achieve the best possible outcomes.

    A Focus on Cerebral Palsy

    For more than 25 years, we’ve made cerebral palsy our priority − staying connected, continually assessing changing needs and improving outcomes with evidence-based treatments, new ideas and innovative interventions. We are an integral part of the CP Clinic and we play a key role in the new Comprehensive Cerebral Palsy Program at Cincinnati Children’s.
