Cerebral Palsy and Adulthood

Cerebral Palsy is a non-progressive disorder.  As children age their CP will not worsen, but neither will it improve or go away.  The two factors that have the biggest effect on adults with CP are motor and intellectual impairments.

The most common challenges that adults with Cerebral Palsy face are:

  • Premature aging
  • Walking or swallowing disorders
  • Post-Impairment syndrome
  • Mental health conditions
  • Challenges in the workplace

These challenges can severely impact an individual’s well-being as an adult.
