Training and Devices: It depends on what type of cerebral palsy you have. If you have hemiplegia then there are devices which can be added to your vehicle to make it easier to drive and even to change how the pedals work on the floor of the car. If both sides of your body are involved, there are also devices that can help you. It is important to find a rehab center which can help with training and getting the devices.
