    Heya @MessiahNetto123 and welcome to the community. I hope you're doing great today?

    We have a cerebral palsy category on the community which may be of help to you here?  Hopefully someone will be able to throw some ideas your way. :)

    Heya. 

    Art club might be a option in order to start off with. If you contact your local library in addition, they can provide information on clubs or groups. Your local newspaper will contain helpful details on what to do and so on. Or alternatively you could always try to find a nice community centre. Good luck. Focus on what he can do already. Cerebral palsy is a spectrum condition. Hobbies are crucial. 

    Take a look online at relevant options. Cast your net wide. Consider his own skills and interests as far as possible here. There are numerous effective vacation play schemes in question for disabled children. Ask the council about that. Additionally get information on library events too. You could buy him a camera and teach him what to do with it. My local bookstore has a range of books on various hobbies to look at. Find some. Ask around for ideas and recommendations. 

    The church often holds fun activities for children and their families as well. It is worth a shot at least. I would try it in any case and see what happens as a result. Things are opening up I know that much now. Tell us more about your boy child though. I am aware that hobbies like sport don’t appeal to everyone who is living on the planet. Far from it in fact. If he likes baking look into that for him. Often times the local community zoos and museums have educational events and stuff on. Again contact them by email or via phone. 

    I hope that this is helpful to you.
