Summer: Again this post is about how the season in all its types and how it affects the body when it has cerebral palsy. Autumn: This will be the final post about how the affects the body with cerebral palsy in the series although I have posted about the way ages affect the body with cerebral palsy. These areas follow: Challenges Ahead Part 1 Challenges Ahead Part 2 And in this following series that starts
