Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is a group of permanent movement disorders that appear in early childhood and during birth. 

 

Signs and symptoms vary among people. Often, symptoms include poor coordination, stiff muscles, weak muscles, and tremors.

 

I have had cerebral palsy myself since I was born, which has affected most aspects of my life in a significant way.

 

I have also lived, worked and played with other people with cerebral palsy throughout my life. 

 

I have also worked with a number of organisations that support people with cerebral palsy.

 

In 1999, I produce research for Scope on the needs of people with cerebral palsy within Coventry and Warwickshire

 

I have also written many articles on my personal experiences of having cerebral palsy.

 

I believe it is important that people with cerebral palsy as appropriate and meaningful support in relation to their impairment. 

 

 

I also believe teens with cerebral palsy should have peer contact with other teens with cerebral palsy, especially if they are in a mainstream school.

I believe cerebral palsy can be seen as having its known cultural significance based on the level and type of 'cp'

I can provide a range of consultancy and training services relating to supporting people with cerebral palsy, including the provision of peer support.
