Growing up is a natural part of life. For those of us with special needs children, the thought of letting them become independent adults can be both frightening and relieving. If your child has cerebral palsy, you have already struggled through years of coping with physical, sensory, or cognitive disabilities. You may wonder if it is even possible for your son or daughter to drive a car. In most cases, with the help of special techniques or adaptive driving equipment, your child can compensate for any impairments and safely get behind the wheel.
