Description

This conference workshop will cover some of the latest research results related to physical activity and exercise for people with cerebral palsy. Specifically, presentations will include 1) priorities for physical activity participation from the perspectives of adolescents with physical disability in Ireland, 2) what adults with complex cerebral palsy want and need to participate in community-based physical activity, and 3) experiences of community-based exercise for non-ambulant adults with childhood-onset disability such as cerebral palsy. At the end of the session, there will be a short panel discussion with speakers to further explore physical activity and exercise for people with cerebral palsy.
