dc.description.abstractThis applied graduate project has been developed to help the parents, families and caregivers of children with cerebral palsy (CP) better understand the special care needs associated with CP so they can assist with daily oral care techniques, find suitable dental care products, and locate adequate or specialized dental treatment services in British Columbia and other parts of Canada. The project consists of both a digital and hard copy kit or "toolbox" (often referred to as a Reach and Teach toolbox by public health service professionals) that is an educational resource for dental hygienists and caregivers. It offers practical and non-invasive techniques, tools, and products for the provision of early and regular dental care for children with CP. Kit contents include a manual, an assessment tool, a daily oral care plan, a list of recommended supplies and suppliers, a PowerPoint training tool, and a 25-minute video. I hope the information provided in this project will positively affect dental care for children with cerebral palsy and improve their overall quality of life.en
