Lifelong learning

Learning is a lifelong activity​​.​

As adults, there are many different pathways to follow to build knowledge and skills, share knowledge and experiences, and be part of communities.

Many adults with cerebral palsy say that they want more opportunities to participate in inclusive learning, to find vocations and employment that support the development of new skills, give back to their community, and feel inspired by possibilities. Understanding individual learning goals, aspirations, abilities and needs is an important factor in sourcing learning opportunities, and empowering adults with cerebral palsy and similar disabilities to pursue their lifelong learning dreams.
