I have cp, i am 48 years old, and I remember being extremely angry when I
was a kid and teenager that my speech impairment kept me from having very
many friends. At age 24 I was rudely told that my behavior was immature by
a so-called friend. i probably didn't feel caught up to normal people until
I was over thirty. You might want to get your son in to a recreation
program w9ith others who have disabilities.

> Hi, Does anyone have any suggestions as how to help communicate
effectively to our son. It seems as though we are not getting thru to him.
For example. We have to constantly repeat what we say over and over. He
doesn't seem to absorb what we say to him. It seems like he doesn't care.
Maybe it's frustration on his part wanting to be like everyone else but
can't? Any suggestions?
