I am attempting what feels like the impossible here. How to describe cerebral palsy to a child that has it: I am not sure that it is entirely necessary to do this. I mean, I grew up knowing something was different with me compared to my sister and other able-bodied people I knew.
I knew I was different and that is all I knew and cared to know. My family told me when I started asking questions about it in a way that was age appropriate. It wasn’t like they sat me down and said you have cerebral palsy and explained what it was. It was a conversation that occurred over a number years and was based around the questions I asked as they came up.
