Parenting a Baby/Child with Cerebral Palsy

I am not a parent of any children, let alone a special needs child. But, I am an adult with cerebral palsy and I feel this is why I can write this post from my perspective.

Despite having two children with the same diagnosis, that diagnosis affects them both differently.

Medical staff can only make educated speculations as to how things will impact your child. The truth is, the only one who knows what your child is capable of, is your child themselves

Let your child try so they no within themselves if they are capable when they are younger they will resist but it will help them be more independent later in life if they have tried and still can’t they, of course, help them there will be frustrations for both you as the parent and your child

Use community resource to find support information and tools remember there have been before you that have raised special needs children and parents of kids with cerebral palsy who have come before you that may have tips and ideas for practical and fun in life they will help you.

in conclusion, remember that you aren’t alone in this nor is your child or family.

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.
