Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month 2020, March 6th
Will is 17-years-old and has Hemiplegia as well as ASD. In Will's words, his Cerebral Palsy makes him "walk wonky and trip over a fair bit!". He attends a mainstream school where he is currently doing his A Levels in German, Geography and Media.
Will is really into film and is also an avid follower of Formula 1.
Will's future plans are to remain positive & upbeat wherever possible and to aim for success... whilst ensuring he has enough time to sleep!
Things that are important to will are:
- Good health
- Family & friends
Will says that if he could change one thing for young people with physical disabilities it would be funding for assistance in education such as support staff and assistive technology. Will also hates it when young people with disabilities are bullied and left out at school.
Will says, "Don't be afraid to take action when things go wrong and to speak out if you need help in any way... oh and always play to your strengths despite your difficulties!"
