#CPChatNow Recap 2-22-2017

This week’s #CPChatNow chat was lively as usual and highlighted the different things people in our community experience in our daily lives.  This is #CPChatNow Interim Co-Host, Devin Axtman, and I will be taking you along on this week’s recap.

We welcomed a new member to the #CPChatNow Twitter chat family as Rachel who is teaching English in Spain joined us.  She heard about us after reading Co-Host Zach Fenell and #CPChatNow co-founder John Quinn’s books and connecting via our Facebook page and monthly Google Hangout.

Talk soon turned to a common hobby in the disability community, naming assistive devices!  Hannah shared her awesome names for her scooters.

Hannah talking about her scooter names "Hank the Tank" and ArsonShira and Zach both talked about her goal of publishing her poems and spreading knowledge and awareness about CP.  Zach offered his experienced advice.

Shira talking with Zach about her goal of publishing her poems of her experience with CPI also had to needle #CPChatNow co-host Blake from his study abroad stint in Spain about not joining us while Rachel stayed up in Spain.  Blake quickly put me in my place and proved he is staying busy as always.

Finally, Rachel, Zach and I talked about things our parents said while we walked as youngsters and the common experience of feeling like a horse.

Devin talked about how his mom told him to take big steps and not to clomp. Rachel said she heard the same thing and often felt like a horseThis leads us to our extend-the-conversation question: What common parental advice do you hear (or give if you’re a parent) related to cerebral palsy?  Please share your responses in the comments!  What common parental advice do you hear (or give) related to Cerebral Palsy?
