: My son is 16 with mild cerebral palsy and is taking driver's education classes. He has driven three days in a row and had two minor accidents! His teacher thinks it is not advisable to continue, but my son really wants to continue. His trouble is in 'freezing up' in a situation requiring a fast decision.
: Can this tendency be overcome with practice, or will it stay the same? I worry about not only his safety, but the safety of pedestrians and other drivers.
: Any experiences you can relate would be appreciated!
