Fortunately, the Americans with Disabilities Act, passed in 1990, requires cultural institutions to be, at a minimum, wheelchair accessible.

This is true for all types of museums more...

The Hollies’ popular 1960s song, “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother” takes on new meaning with the recent 40-mile trek taken by 14-year-old Michigan teenager Hunter Gandee.

For safety and support, the boys’ more...

Additional Health Challenges for Adults with Cerebral Palsy

July 24, 2014
Category: Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral palsy is the leading cause of childhood disabilities in the U.S. While cerebral palsy symptoms vary widely from person to person, the “common denominator” among all people with the disorder is difficulty with movement and posture. This presents tremendous challenges in their own right, and unfortunately there are often additional health conditions that occur as individuals with cerebral palsy age.

Those challenges more...
