In the video below, we’re answering a question from one of our YouTube fans. She has a teenager who has cerebral palsy and isn’t very independent. We try to give some useful tips to help him do more on his own. We offer several pieces of advice, but it’s hard to give tips when you know little about the person. One tip we talk about is therapy. We both had therapy growing up and it gave us the encouragement to try to do more on our own.
