Health - Cerebral palsy - Archie's story - Same but different
« on: December 12, 2012, 06:47:18 PM »
We meet Archie, a 10 year old twin.

Both he and his brother Charlie have cerebral palsy. The twins have much in common and do things together.
Archie explains how cerebral palsy affects him.
Doctors predicted that he would be unable to do certain things he can do.
He spends much of his time in a wheelchair, but crawls when out of it to enjoy certain things such as gardening.
He is unable to do things as quickly as others; it just takes time, especially when moving about.
He does not need help academically; he says that his brain works.

Archie says that whilst he may look different he does not feel different. He thinks he is the same, but on wheels. Archie plays wheelchair basketball which gives him the chance to socialise, play with others and to be part of a team. Archie sees his coach as a role model who inspires him.
