Alors que le mois de sensibilisation à la paralysie cérébrale touche à sa fin, nous terminons avec des détails sur une discussion importante qui a lieu entre le directrice générale de l'accessibilité du Canada et Peter Leyser.We recently met with the Canadian Cerebral Palsy Sports Association (CCPSA), and applaud their efforts to empower athletes with cerebral palsy or related disabilities to reach their full potential. We had a great discussion about their successes, as well as the barriers that still need to be removed – particularly barriers to safe transportation and the attitudinal barriers faced by athletes with disabilities. As #CerebralPalsyAwarenessMonth comes to an end, we celebrate and support their efforts to create a more #inclusive playing field for all.
