Abstract

The purpose of this thesis is to present in autobiographical form some of the problems of the cerebral palsied and my own solutions to those problems. I have attempted to present the psychological and social implications of cerebral palsy as they apply to myself and, by extension, as they apply to anyone who is under a handicap. I have not attempted to write a strictly chronological autobiography. Rather, I have attempted to make of each chapter a dramatic unit, using a problem or achievement as the central theme for each chapter and ranging forward and backward in time as the theme dictated. Under this scheme the thesis is divided into three sections and eighteen chapters within those sections.
