: I've just printed out the contents of your entire web site. I'm thrilled! I am the mom of a 6-1/2 year old boy with spastic diplegia cerebral palsy. I've read everything I can get my hands on over the past several years. Unfortunately, the point of view is generally that of the parent or doctor. I have become more and more interested in learning how it feels to grow up with cp, so that my husband and I can better parent our son. We want him to grow up happy and well-adjusted. Without having disabilities ourselves, we can only go by instinct. We worry about Nathan going through grade school and high school (he is currently in kindergarten) and the social obstacles he may face. Any advice is welcome.
I wish you and your son luck on the journey of life.
