Lessons to be learned from both sides: just because you're in a wheelchair, you do not have the right to be a p.i.t.a.
The amount of learning depends on the severity of the CP, and that varies greatly, but brain damage can and does occur.
If you go to ArMaP's link, you will notice that the youngster has difficulty even in focusing, Strabismus or Heterotopia) and that's a bit scary for
someone who has other issues due to CP, of which Strabismus is but one symptom.
There can be multiple congenital disorders, and nothing will change through life.
So the last thing is to expect that this youngster is normal, mentally or physically, he isn't.
You could be expecting too much.
