Cerebral Palsy Teens

I think it’s safe to say that growing up as a teenager is difficult at the best of times. But imagine you are a teenager with a disability that holds a whole host of other challenges.
I think one of the interesting components to having a disability during adolescence is that it gives you a unique perspective on things around you. At the same time however, I think having the disability can make you feel alone and isolated in your teen years. Not to mention, the way you achieve activities of daily living is often different than your peers , which I assume only attribute to feeling different.
Here’s a few suggestions I have that may help you.
Recognized as being different men’s you are unique and there’s nothing wrong with that. I understand that being different is difficult but honestly if we were all the same the world would be boring
Understand that it is going to take you considerably longer than your peers to accomplish the same task. This is just because you’re cerebral palsy inhibits you
Don’t forget that even though you have a disability your still a teenager, and honestly the role of a teenager is to have fun!

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.

  1. The problem with being a teenager is all your peers expect you to be the same but better. The best becomes prom king & queen. The jocks become bullies; others are forced to form other cliques. That leaves a “disabled” teen as a reject or undesirable. The good thing though is the “disabled” teen is s/he can find other undesirables. THis is what I did. I found a group of misfits and hanged with them until I graduated. There is light at the end of the high school tunnel, in college nobody cares to be popular. The “disabled” teen may have to endure some ridicule for the first year but after that, it’s pretty much free sailing…no bullies because college is paid for and no one wants to waist money on something so trivial. When you’re an adult you realize that the high point to the prom king & queen and jocks life usually is high school. Most of the ones who bullied me ended up in prison or dropouts.
