Social connection and community

Teenagers with cerebral palsy can be more restricted in their participation.

As a result, they participate less often, compared to their typically developing peers. For many teenagers, increased participation is a goal.

Finding activities that interest your teen is important for their social and community participation. These may include playing music, camping, going to music festival, art and crafts and attending concerts.

Involvement in a range of social experiences helps with physical, social and emotional development. Blending ‘therapy’ within fun activities that are motivating and meaningful can also enhance outcomes.
