Exploring young adulthood: Experiences and perceptions of participation for those with cerebral palsy

Exploring young adulthood: Experiences and perceptions of participation for those with cerebral palsy
Posted on Wed 9 Mar 2022

Are you living with cerebral palsy and you’re aged between 16 and 30 years of age?

Researchers from Monash University and Murdoch Children’s Research Institute in Victoria want to learn about what life is like for you, in particular your experiences of participation in areas such as extracurricular activities, education and employment, relationships (including friendship, romantic and family), work, and being in the community. They want to talk to a wide range of adolescents and young adults with cerebral palsy.

The findings from this study will help inform the creation of resources that assist others like yourself on ways to increase participation in areas of daily life that matter most, and promote a successful transition into adulthood.
