working to better the disability cause

As an adult with a disability I have been working to better the cause for people with disabilities since 2009 by means of this blog. I think it is an honor to be the voice for others in a similar situation who for whatever reason don’t have a means to educate others.


I recognize as a parent of a child who will be considered different by their peers because of something they can’t control, their disability. I want to offer hope to those struggling with it and if I can be a voice for others who may feel overwhelmed by the notion that their family member has cerebral palsy but sharing my seemingly normal life, that I can be a contributing member of society. I write these blogs as much for all of you as I do for myself I want to become a one stop for everything cerebral palsy and disability related so I ask what would you like from this blog in the future?

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.
