Hello,
Try to treat him as a "normal" person. Don't be afraid of talking to him. If you don't know how to behave yourself, then tell him that. And do talk to HIM - NOT to the caregivers! The most stupid you could do is talking over his head! Many do so, and it's very frustrating!
Allways remember that we can think and comprehend - even though we have CP! :-)

Mail if you feel like it, maybe I can "help" to understand the disablement... (I have CP myself.)
I'll gladly answer to further questions.
My E-mailaddress is:
zippies_husse@emaila.nu

Best regards,
Rickard!

: I'm a teacher and I recently filled in for a special ed teacher and I had the pleasure of meeting a 14 year old boy with severe CP that captured my heart. My mom is an RN so I knew a little about CP but could you please share some knowledge on how much he may comprehend in conversations. The regular caregivers around him treat him like a baby, this bothered me. How can I communicate with him??? Thanks and GOD BLESS
