Hi all, I’m new here and a little shy. I’m looking to learn and understand more about CP, I do not have the condition myself but someone special to me does so I have a lot to learn!

    Hi @DisneyFan247
                                 How are you? Welcome to the community and thank you for joining us. I have Cerebral Palsy and would be happy to answer any questions you may have if I am able too. I think I would say the key thing to remember about Cerebral Palsy is that it affects no two people with the condition in exactly the same way. Thank you.
