thoughts on cerebral palsy life expectancy


I am often asked how long can you live with cerebral palsy? I used to think that this was a one size fits all answer. But I am here to humbly say that further thought on this has led me to write this post

severe cerebral palsy life expectancy

There are several types of cerebral palsy  and I think that that can play a role in how long one will live despite having cerebral palsy; though I don’t have fact to back this up I would think severe cerebral palsy life expectancy would lead to a shorter lifespan as I assume there would be other health issues at play.

spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy life expectancy

I live every day with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy and I can say with certainty that those of that have this diagnosis live a normal lifespan.

In conclusion

Lifespan is a thing for all of us regardless of cerebral palsy we could all be struck down by a sudden health issue

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.
