The American Academy for Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine (AACPDM), founded in 1948, is a multidisciplinary scientific society devoted to the study of cerebral palsy and related neurological disorders and to professional education in developmental medicine. The Academy seeks to stimulate professional education, research, and interest in the problems involved in understanding these disorders and improving care and rehabilitation. Toward these ends AACPDM holds a variety of instructional courses and scientific plenary sessions designed to help professional people improve their knowledge and skills. AACPDM is funded by fees from its over 1,500 members.
The Academy publishes no scientific material on its own. Members include orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists, neurologists, and physical medicine & rehabilitation (PM&R) physicians. A membership roster and a subscription to Developmental Medicine and Child Neurology are distributed to all members, plus a semi-annual newsletter. Serial publication: AACPDM Newsletter, quarterly--information on Academy programs and other activities.
