Movement, mobility and function

Physical changes at this age can affect movement, mobility and function​​.​
Some adults with cerebral palsy notice these changes in their 20’s or 30’s. For many adults with cerebral palsy, it’s important to be mobile, be able to do daily activities, take part in the community, and stay fit and healthy. Assistive technology needs change as the body changes, so it’s good to plan for the future.
