Yes, sometimes: Fortunately there are many avenues to obtaining an education for people with cerebral palsy. The public school system, although sometimes difficult, can provide a great eduction. Many colleges and vocational schools also support people with cp. The job situation is not that great for everyone, but worse for someone with a disability. It depends on your level of cp, but more on your desires.
