My advice is to contact the United Cerebral Palsy chapter in your area. They can send
you some literature on cp. I have cp, and wear a brace on my right leg. About your son not wanting to go to school ... maybe ask
your son's teacher to do a unit on disabilities to promote some sensitivity in the other kids.
Another idea is enrolling your son in an activity (I have found success with martial arts and
swimming) to build up his confidence. I have also seen people put stickers on braces to
make them look "cool". I hope that this helps.
