G'day! Today is world CP day. To raise awareness the event organisers asked us to identify, 'where we live' and facts about the type of CP we have.

I have spastic quadriplegia which means my enter body is affected my low muscle tone. CP is a neurological condition which results is primary physical disability. A small percentage of people with CP have an intellectual disability as well.  So don't end up looking like a goose and talk to me like I don't understand what you're saying! 
You might judge me by my cover, But I have actually studied Behavioural Science. So if you like me to tell you about human behaviour I can.
I have done many things in the 49 years I have lived on this earth.  I am a author, poet, artist and a arts administrator.

CP has not stop me from dreaming and reaching those dreams. As an artist and an arts administrator I get to travel and see out wonderful country.  I guess our message today is to remind the world that CP is a physical disability, that doesn't define what our lives look like.
My name is Deb Chilton
I live in Ipswich, Queensland Australia
and just happen to have CP!
