rolling through life with all four wheels (and sometimes two feet) firmly planted on the ground




Hello this is my first blog. Well, the first that I hope to keep up, for well as long as I can! This blog as the title suggests is about life with a disability,

with a strong focus on physical disability and specifically Cerebral Palsy as that is what I have personally. I for one feel like the disabled community is a culture to itself,  and although a subculture, it drives me crazy how there are so many misconceptions particularly surrounding Physical Disability. I am not an expert on this subject nor am I claiming to be I am just attempting to share my life from first hand in hopes it helps others. If you have questions or are seeking resources into something CP related or other wise please ask and I will do my best to help you in finding information that would be relevant

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled. You can follow her on Twitter or Facebook
