|Have you talk to the school about getting her category changed? That way she will be recognized for her accomplishments. If they refuse to change it, look into getting a lawyer. That's what we ended up doing for our son. The school didn't leave us any choice. They were uncooperative. Our lawyer, [a href="http://www.csnlg.com"]CSNLG[/a] , made sure our son was given the rights as he should be. It took time, but I am so glad we did. Something you may want to look into.
Hope everything works out! ↑

|Hi there! I am 33 years old and man oh man can I ever relate! I have mild CP on my right side, had a z incision on my heal chord when I was 4, wore a brace for a bit, and was released to be mainstreamed.
Without a net, so to speak.
Were there some pretty terrible things my peers did to me before turning 18 - you bet. In fact, at one point in 7th grade some pretty horrible things happened in gym class.
But you know what? I have a stronger sense of self worth now than most folks.
I graduated HS with a 3.9, got BSE and MSE in chemical engineering, have worked on Wall St., have lived overseas (when I was 21, completely of my own accord).
Like me, your daughter is beautiful.
Certain levels of enlightenment can only be achieved via some suffering.
Her young challenges will give her the strength to supercede her "normal" counterparts. Mark my words. ↑

|Hi, I was diagnostic with mild cerebral palsy at age 3 I had to wear braces till I was 5. I had to have a lot of speech therapy and occupation therapy and physical therapy. I never had a normal childhood cause of it. Just a few years ago when I was 18 we found out one of my legs was shorter then the other one I can barley stand for 5 mins and then my legs start to hurt so bad. I also have had horrible time in school nothing ever made sense to me. And then I started to take tests in a quiet room and teachers would read the tests to me I would understand it more. They would also help me with my homework if I had any trouble. I hope this helped you. ↑

|I have mild Cerebral Palsy, but it's a little more severe than your daughter's in the sense that I use crutches. I'm 19 now. It's difficult to find people like us or accepting people, especially in high school. Once she branches out though, life will get easier. I'm in university now studying Psychology, and have tons of friends.
The older people get, the more mature they are, and the more accepting they are. The most important part about high school isn't about fitting in, it's about trying to figure out how to be yourself. What I did when I didn't fit in was join a whole ton of clubs, like debate club for example. I started helping my team win debates, and guess what? I was respected as part of the team because I showed people what I was capable of. Kids are afraid of what they don't understand. It's hard, but most of the time people with disabilities have to be the ones to put themselves out there. ↑

|My 15-year-old Granddaughter Lauren Walier has Cerebral Palsy. On 10/18/13 she spoke at The American Academy of Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine, a global audience of doctors, researchers, clinicians, therapists, etc. in Milwaukee, WI. Please be patient as she is very emotional and nervous getting started.
Please help Lauren by forwarding this to every email address you have. Lauren is a very courageously starting a crusade to help people less fortunate that she is by raising funds and awareness for cerebral palsy research and therapy. In May through August she rasied over $7000 for her cause. Please help us make Lauren's foundation, Make Lemon Aide for Cerebral Palsy and Lauren a major fundraiser for CP. Every penny Lauren raises goes to her cause. Listen to her dreams and please support them to come true.

|Hello. My daughter is 14 months and cannot sit up unassisted. The health visitor put it down to her being lazy. I have recently been giving a new one who thinks she has cerebral palsy due to her symptoms and curvature to the spine. I have waited 4 months to finally see a doctor. I feel like am not getting anywhere with anyone. Just wanted some advice and not sure weather to take her threw a&e because it is getting worse. Christmas just gone she could not play with any toys because she still has to go in her bouncer for support an when sat up goes to the side which is very uncomfortable for her. I had a traumatic birth also because midwife messed up and caused her to get stress and her heart beat to drop for a good few seconds. ↑

|Hey Caitlyn We have a lot in common. I have mild cp and people at school think of me as normal. They expect a little to much out of me then I can handle. I have a little limp in my right leg and my right hand struggles a bit. I don't want to try sports because I don't want people to notice. I can't do skates and have troubles with swimming. It's nice to know I'm not the only one with a problem like this. Hope everything has workout! ↑
