My introduction to the Cerebral Palsy Association of Greater Baton Rouge came in 1970 when our family moved from NY to Baton Rouge. Our youngest of 6 children was 2 years old and had cerebral palsy. The Center introduced him to an intensive weekly program of physical, occupational, and speech therapies. Therapies continued until he was 20 years old. Today, at the age of 42, he is able to live alone with some attendant help. He works part time at a local hospital and enjoys the independence and opportunities afforded him by those years of therapy. He is very much indebted to the CPA of GBR.
