' Is he all right? ' A mother's first question after her baby is born. ' He's not spastic? ' For the four babies in every thousand born with cerebral palsy, the outlook is no longer as bleak as it was. In the past the problem was seen as a purely medical one. Today, hope lies in combining medical treatment, with better education.

Here the children rise to the challenge of learning how to be independent people. Narrator FRANK GILLARD
