The American Academy for Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine (AACPDM) offers many awards, grants and scholarships each year, to honor our outstanding members and scientific presenters at our Annual Meeting.

The Mentorship Award recognizes an individual who is an active member of the AACPDM and who has demonstrated outstanding leadership mentoring trainees and colleagues in the field of childhood-onset disabilities. Particular focus is placed on the contribution and impact of the mentoring to improve services/care, promote professional education and/or promote research for children with disabilities.

AACPDM would like to CONGRATULATE Bernadette Gillick, PT, MSPT, PhD on receiving the 2021 AACPDM Mentorship Award!

Bernadette Gillick, PhD, MSPT, PT is an Associate Professor and Director of Neuromodulation at the Waisman Center, University of Wisconsin-Madison. Dr. Gillick earned her undergraduate degrees in Physical Therapy and Psychology at Marquette University, an Advanced Master’s Degree at Chicago Medical School and a PhD in Rehabilitation Science with a minor in Neuroscience from the University of Minnesota. Thereafter she completed a Fellowship in Randomized Behavioral Clinical Trials at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). She is an internationally respected expert on the use of innovative technologies and interventions in perinatal stroke and cerebral palsy from infancy to young adulthood. Her clinical research focus surrounds pediatric neuromodulation and rehabilitation in optimizing outcomes throughout the lifespan. Her current grant support includes AACPDM C-Progress award, and NIH R01 and R21 awards investigating infant cortical and behavioral development after perinatal stroke and early brain injury using non-invasive brain stimulation, neuroimaging and neuromodulation interventions.

The American Academy for Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine (AACPDM) offers many awards, grants and scholarships each year, to honor our outstanding members and scientific presenters at our Annual Meeting.

The Duncan Wyeth Award is presented to an individual who demonstrates outstanding participation in or promotion of sports and recreation and serves as a role model for people with disabilities. The award is named after Mr. Duncan Wyeth for his passion towards life and for encouraging people with disabilities of all ages to pursue interests and dreams based upon their abilities and not to be limited by their disability. Duncan is an active advocate in his local community as well as nationally and internationally. His enthusiasm for life, sports and recreation are contagious and inspirational to all.

AACPDM would like to CONGRATULATE Bradley Heaven on receiving the 2021 AACPDM Duncan Wyeth Award!

"My name is Bradley Heaven. I was born with Non Verbal Spastic Cerebral Palsy, but I don’t let it hold me back. I communicate using an Eye Tracker and a Surface Book 3. I graduated from Social Science from Dawson College in Montreal, Quebec. A few years ago, my best friend / business partner Danny and I noticed it was hard to keep up with trending resources to assist people with disabilities. So, we decided to create a one stop shop for help people keep up. Our website has 7 different categories, Physical Disability, Cerebral Palsy, Autism, Down Syndrome, Deaf/Hard of Hearing, Blind/Visual Impairment, and the Elderly. Each of these categories have technology/gadgets to help daily life easier, Apps, Inspirational Videos, and other resources. We also review Adaptive products, do vlogs to break the stigmas surrounding Cerebral Palsy, and much more on YouTube. Our YouTube is allaccesslife, and our website is www.allaccesslife.org. Danny and I are running a marathon this fall to raise funds for All Access Life. Danny is pushing me 40 kms in my Josi Jogging Adaptive Stroller, and then Danny is going to transfer me in my Adaptive Walker and I’m going to finish the last 2.2km in my walker!!! No Limits!!!"

Congratulations, Bradley Heaven!

What is Mowat-Wilson Syndrome (MWS)? MWS is a rare congenital syndrome characterized by distinct facial characteristics, intellectual disability, epilepsy, Hirschsprung disease and sometimes, other congenital conditions. According to Orphanet, "The typical characteristic facies of MWS includes a high forehead, frontal bossing, large eyebrows that are medially flaring and sparse in the middle part, hypertelorism, deepset but large eyes, large and uplifted ear lobes with a central depression, saddle nose with prominent rounded nasal tip, prominent columella, open mouth with M-shaped upper lip, and a prominent but narrow and triangular pointed chin. The facies becomes more pronounced with age. Associated HSCR causes constipation which frequently persists after surgery. Patients usually have moderate to severe intellectual disability. Speech is absent or limited to a few words, with onset at around 4 years. Seizures are common; all types of seizures (absence, generalized tonic-clonic seizures, myoclonic, and focal seizures) have been reported. Most subjects have a happy demeanor with frequent smiling and a sociable personality. Other associated congenital anomalies can include cerebral (agenesis of the corpus callosum), cardiac (patent ductus arteriosus, ventricular septal defect), respiratory (valvular pulmonary stenosis, pulmonary artery sling, with or without tracheal stenosis), genitourinary (hypospadias, cryptorchidism, vesicoureteral reflux and hydronephrosis), ocular (microphthalmia) and musculoskeletal (pes planus, calcaneovalgus). Asplenia is rare. Affected children tend to have a high pain threshold."
