About five hundred thousand Americans have cerebral palsy, an incurable condition caused by brain damage to unborn or newly born babies. Austin Roberts, two and a half years of age, suffers from the condition. He cannot walk on his own or feed himself. He speaks in single words, not whole sentences. The author explores his story, and that of Jennifer Decker, a twenty-one-year-old college student who also has the condition. Gold explains the causes, diagnosis, and treatment of cerebral palsy and explores how people with the condition can cope with it and lead rewarding lives.
