 Full Description: 
Research into how people with cerebral palsy age is limited. It shows that they experience an increase in things like pain, muscle and joint fatigue, depression and loneliness, and feelings of isolation.

Research also suggests that people with CP fear the aging process. They may ask themselves:
What will happen to my body? ! Balance and posture are often affected.

What kinds of skills or abilities will I still have as I age?

Which skills or abilities will I lose?

Everybody ages, but for those with CP (who may put enormous stress on the body every day),the “wear and tear” feelings of an aging body can come on sooner than the rest of the population.

This book is written for people with cerebral palsy and uses large text with many illustrations. Click on the "Web Links" tab above to download the entire 30-page book for free as a PDF.
