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. You can follow her on Twitter or Facebook

    Hallo
    I am the mother of a boy with cerebral palsy. He is 4 years old. We come from Greece. In our country there are not many children with cerebral palsy and even less adults. The recent years the number of children born with cp is rising, due to premature labour as a result of twin or multiple pregnancy through IVF (this is my case also). Although we have good doctors (special neurologists, orthopedic surgeons)and good therapists, there are many problems.
    The whole country has been having hard times the last three or four years. The national health system is no longer able to provide what we need. It took us a month to prescribe the botox injections. The hospital where the kid had the botox is going to be shut down by the government due to financial reasons. We paid 1000 Euros for the AFOS. It’s been a year and we weren’t given any money back yet (a medium monthly salary is about 700-800 Euros here, now because of the economic crisis salaries have decreased a lot, small shops and business were shut down, many people are unemployed). In the community, it doesn’t exist the least design for a kid with cerebral palsy (schools, playgrounds etc. There are not special stores with everyday things for such a kid. Big equipment needed like stairs elevators, wheelchairs, rollators, home acessories, is imported and it is fairly expensive. For small things like spoons, forks or toys we use our imagination and our construction skills. But the most important is there is not any adult experience about cp. If you search the internet in Greek, you find only medical articles and some advice from therapy centres. Personal experience from mothers of children with cp, or adults with cp is absolutely lacking.
    In a cp blog I ‘m looking for different kinds of information like practical solutions to everyday living problems but mostly I ‘m looking for experience e.g things that were difficult at school and the solutions, activities suitable for a cp kid, childhood/adolescence/adult life of a cp person, anything.
    I only recently found your blog and I ‘ve already found enough posts very helpful. For example, your last post about attendants made me think that we must choose very carefully the person that will help the child at school, she must have the potential to be more than an attendant.
    So keep up the good work.
    Thank you
    Anna
