The social implication of cerebral palsy

Cerebral palsy is one of those things that despite living with I am always learning about.  I shouldn’t say that I am learning new things about cerebral palsy, but rather how cerebral palsy impacts each of us differently.

The social implication of cerebral palsy is an interesting topic to me. I have always been told of my cerebral palsy in my case since I have used a wheelchair so there was hiding this fact would have been a little challenging. I know of people however who learn of their disability later in life. I think this would be something hard to deal with late in life. You have formed your identity thinking one thing then to learn something so life-changing I find it interesting to think about!

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.

    I was told I had CP at 2 or 3 years old. I have no idea why a person would wait to tell their child or relative their diagnosis. I say let children know as early as possible that they have CP. Of course there are cases where the CP is so mild no one finds out until later which is completely different.
