IntroductionDoes your child have a friend, family member, or classmate who has cerebral palsy? Would you like your child or the children in your classroom to understand more about cerebral palsy? Are you looking for an engaging way to start a dialogue about cerebral palsy? I wrote this book to solve these challenges. C is for Cerebral Palsy is a children's picture book in an ABC format. With delightful illustrations, this book teaches typical conditions that people with cerebral palsy might have. The book uses child-friendly language and is narrated by a 6-year-old with cerebral palsy. C is for Cerebral Palsy provides an entertaining way to start a simple educational discussion about cerebral palsy. I invite you to read this story interactively with your child. Encourage discussions of how you or your friends might be like the child in this book. You might compare and contrast how the child in this book is similar or different from a person you know with cerebral palsy. I intentionally chose a child with more significant limitations so you or your child's friends may have more options for movement. I believe knowledge helps break down barriers and encourages kindness and patience. Helping children understand cerebral palsy at a young age is powerful. Reading this book will change the life of your child and the lives of people with cerebral palsy that your child meets now and in the future.
