In 1952, three parents of children with cerebral palsy set up The Spastics Society because no one would educate their children.
The organisation grew and changed to become a household name. But attitudes to disabled people changed as well. The word 'spastic' became a term of abuse. Suddenly, The Spastics Society's name was holding it back.
We wanted to say something positive about disability. In 1994, The Spastics Society became Scope.
