I started this blog is a resource for people who have cerebral palsy or have a loved one with it. A few years ago, I wrote about my top 10 things related to disability etiquette. That post, has ended up being one of my more popular posts on the site.


I feel that this is a subject that is important to me but even I sometimes overlook it. I feel that I overlook it because I assume that the world sees past my chair like my friends and family do. However, what I perceive the reality to be is that the chair makes people uncomfortable. I know that growing up my peers associated my disability with a cognitive disability also. In my individual case my cerebral palsy is a strictly physical thing and it is why I write this blog to simply make it clear that although I write about my life with cerebral palsy in hopes of helping others I do remember that my case is as unique as the next. I feel like sharing my story gives at least a starting point and if it helps someone in a small way then I am happy to have made an impact.
I hope you my readers understand my gratitude and I hope you find value and joy in reading my blog as much as I do writing 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.
