What is CPToys?
CPToys is an online portal specifically designed for therapists and parents of children with cerebral palsy to maximise the outcomes of therapy by enhancing engagement, practice and neuroplasticity. Using innovative technology, CPToys matches a child’s individual upper limb therapy goals to a range of fun and motivating toys. It is not a replacement for therapy, but ensures therapy is done in a way that is grounded in research and best practice principles. Following assessment by a therapist, individual programs can be set-up for children and easily shared with families via the CPToys online portal. Families are empowered with a better understanding of their child’s specific therapy goals and can easily find the right toys for their child’s therapy home programs. CPToys allows programs to be updated as children make improvements and develop.
In addition to accessing individual therapy programs, CPToys also offers monthly online parent forums that focus on supporting families in understanding the latest research in therapy for children with cerebral palsy.
Annual subscription fee – $205 + GST
Monthly subscription fee – $19 + GST
How to access CPToys
Accessing funding for CPToys via your child’s NDIS plan will depend on how the plan is managed. Your service provider / therapist will need to recommend CPToys as a low-cost AT item and link it to a functional goal in their report/service summary.
Self-Managed – It is important that you discuss a CPToys subscription with your service provider/therapist and ensure that it is linked to a functional goal and noted in your child’s summary notes. There is no need for additional justification. Simply sign up for our 14-day free trial at www.cptoys.org and you can process payment via our website using Paypal or a credit card at the end of the free trial period.
Plan Managed – Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can prepare a quote or invoice for you that you can share with your Plan Manager. It is important to ask them to check your budget to determine if funding is available without further approval.
Agency Managed – CPToys is not an NDIS registered provider. As a result, children with plans that are managed by NDIS will not be able to seek reimbursement or payment for a CPToys subscription.
