can a person with cerebral palsy live on their own


I’ve given the subject a lot of thought, both for the sake of this blog post and within my life out of necessity. The question is: can a person with cerebral palsy live on their own?

Preparing to move out

Approximately 10 years ago, for me, I was entering a new phase in life. That time in life was transitioning into adulthood, which came in the form of moving out on my own. or, as is more depicted as moving in with a roommate.
The reality is, moving out when you have a disability. it will need a lot more forethought and planning. Do you need support to live alone? By support, I mean do you need help getting dressed or showering? If so, you will need to plan and know specifics about what you need in regards to support? You must be able to direct someone on how best to help you


Yes the reality is most people with cerebral palsy can live on their own

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.
