Cerebral Palsy Prevalence
As parents of a child with Cerebral Palsy Prevalence, Bryan and I have frequently used the phrase, “as long as I’m able”. We knew we would continue to climb the ladders and go down slides with Roa, carry him up flights of stairs to change his play environment and keep up with his brother, and hold him up to bat at out of reach objects like the leaves in the trees or the basketball hoop.
As long as our strength and stamina matched his rapid toddler growth, we would do this. As long as we were able, we would play tag or Duck Duck Goose with other children; one of us acting as his “walker” supporting him through movements as long as our energy allowed.
