How to talk to my 3-year-old grandson about his CP?
I’m asking for advice about how to talk to my 3 year old grandson. He has CP and has learned to walk in the last 6 months, brilliant! But his little nursery friends are beginning to ask questions about why he can’t walk properly. He has a “typical” very stiff legged gait and after using a Walker for a while he now makes tremendous effort to get about by himself. He himself isn’t yet aware that he isn’t the same as everyone else. Has anyone else discovered words to be able to prepare him for challenges and also to accept that he is a bit different from his classmates?
