would you like a better understanding of how cerebral palsy can limit you

It occurred to me growing up as one of few physical disabilities in the mainstream school that few get what that like – to have a visible physical disability. But, then again I don’t know what it’s like to have the ability to walk free of support or assistive devices.


It always seemed odd to me to have disability simulation days where people would put on goggles to simulate the life of someone with visual impairment or spend a day in a wheelchair. This also seemed and truthfully still does seem odd but I understand the idea behind it. I think it seems weird because the chair is all I have ever known and why would you want to simulate that? It baffles me yet I get the concept behind it

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.

    And they really don’t understand after spending one day with the limitations we live with 24/7. I, too, understand the concept though. I give them 2 brownie points for at least making an effort to understand a little about what goes on with us. We will continue to be patient with the able-bodied.

    Sounds like a really good idea to get people to understand disabilities.
