    Hi @becysu

    Welcome! :)

    How are you?

    There are many discussions regarding CP, have a good look around the website and you will find 'Talk about specific conditions' and CP is near the top of the list of discussions :) If there is anything else we can help you with please let us know :)

    Nice to meet you!

    Hi @becysu
    Great to meet you!
    I have Cerebral Palsy but unfortunately not a background in social work or psychology.I think the easiest way to meet people with similar interests to you, would be to start a new discussion with your interests as the title. If you need any help with that let us know.

    Hi, I have a strange situation. Though I was told I was born with CP, in my mid twenties, I developed Dystonia, affecting my eyes, neck, and vocal cords. When I spoke when I was young, I was told I had a funny accent, and asked where I was from.

    I had a main streamed education before the word was even created! 
    I may have Cerebral Palsy and Dystonia, but I try not to define myself by what I have, but rather by what have accomplished and continue to do.
    I have lived in Israel for a couple of years and have traveled throughout Europe with family and friends.

    I am currently writing a story about my life and would love to hear from others with similar journeys as mine.

    Thank you all.
