March is cerebral palsy awareness month

I don’t know if you are aware that March is Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month. To honour that I decided to do a little bit of research.
Did you know that cerebral palsy was first discovered by a man named William John Little? William John Little however was not the man to coin the term cerebral palsy. The term was coined by Sir William Osler who was the first person to write a book about the condition. (This information was paraphrased from the following source.)
In celebration of cerebral palsy awareness month I have opened a store selling blog products. Feel free to browse, and spread the word about cerebral palsy by purchasing an item to use everyday.

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.
