How Do You Get Cerebral Palsy?

The question of how you get cerebral palsy came up in a brain storming session. According to Wikipedia it is defined as: “Cerebral palsy (CP) is an umbrella term encompassing a group of non-progressive,[1][2] non-contagious motor conditions that cause physical disability in human development, chiefly in the various areas of body movement”

.

For me, cerebral palsy is all I’ve ever known and it seems to be much social stigma around the label of disability, especially as it pertains to youth and adolescents. Please keep in mind however, that cerebral palsy is all I’ve ever known it was something I was born with so I really do not know any other way of life. It is not something to pity nor do I feel sorry for myself because of it. In fact, I feel my perspective is unique because of having cerebral palsy.

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.
