In this presentation, we will investigate seating and mobility issues for individuals with Cerebral Palsy from aging to infancy. Many clinic settings are divided into either pediatric or adult focused service provision. This session will bring pediatric and adult therapists together, addressing overarching issues seen within our individual clinics, to better help our patients and families throughout the life span. Areas to be addressed will include the overall aging process with Cerebral Palsy, family challenges, fluctuations in equipment needs, changing financial and funding resources and transitions in health care as the person “ages out” of the pediatric realm. Working together to understand the diversity of this population throughout the lifespan will maximize independence and minimize disruptions in care. Case studies as well as evidence from the literature will target the daily challenges from a big picture perspective.
